O’Reilly + Sean P. Kane – HashiCorp Vault Fundamentals—with Interactivity

October 5th, 2023 at 6:00 am to 9:00 am PDT

Robust secrets management, data encryption, and security

Managing secrets is one of the most common security-related tasks that companies must handle, yet the solutions used are often homegrown, locked into a particular platform, or simply inconsistent across teams. HashiCorp Vault provides teams with a well-designed and secure secrets management component that can be integrated into all their systems, provide a well-known single source of truth, and help handle complex security requirements in a robust and standardized fashion.

Join expert Sean Kane to gain a solid understanding of Vault’s capabilities. You’ll start by spinning up a very basic Vault cluster using containers. Once the cluster is running, you’ll get to configure various aspects of Vault and learn about some of the common types of secrets that Vault supports and how they can be configured and used by applications.

Hands-on learning with interactive sandboxes

All exercises and labs will take place within an O’Reilly interactive sandbox—a complete development environment that’s preconfigured with everything you need. There’s nothing to install or configure; just click a link and get started!

What you’ll learn and how you can apply it

By the end of this live online course, you’ll understand:

  • The basics of spinning up and configuring a Vault cluster
  • How to use the most common secrets’ backends for Vault
  • How applications can be configured to use Vault secrets

And you’ll be able to:

  • Use containers to launch a development Vault setup
  • Initialize and unlock the Vault cluster
  • Install a new Vault backend
  • Create and manage secrets in Vault
  • Rotate secrets
  • Leverage the Vault API

This live event is for you because…

  • You’re an engineer who needs a safe way to store and manage secrets.
  • You need an easier way to rotate secrets.
  • You need to provide a robust secrets management solution for your company.
  • You’re interested in learning more about modern computer security.

Prerequisites

  • A computer capable of running Linux containers, with a current release of Docker or Docker Desktop installed and functioning
  • Familiarity with secrets and common use cases in modern development
  • Experience with Linux containers and the Linux command line (useful but not required)
