Hashicorp Vault to secure infrastructure, kubernetes and legacy applications in an enterprise context

Security in enterprise context is paramount. The session is about how Hashicorp Vault has been adopted to transition from a perimeter based security setup to a zero trust setup.

A private key infrastructure has been adopted to secure communications between services, applications and databases. Secrets and passwords are managed by Vault only and they rotated on a regular basis.

We’ll show the challenges we had to face to integrate people, processes, and a mix of technology like kubernetes, virtual machines, legacy applications deployed in application servers or services that were not built for these security standards.

Required audience experience

High-level understanding of security

Objectives of the talk

Show a possible implementation of Vault to secure end to end all services with most recent security standards. Other than some technical aspects, we’ll show some key facts from a governance point of view.
