HashiCorp Terraform
Updated Apr. 3 2021

To achieve shared services for infrastructure provisioning across clouds, teams need to define in code reproducible infrastructure as code practices. Used in combination with Venafi, Terraform builds infrastructure with machine identities that fit the smart policies and compliance required by security. This speeds DevOps teams’ performance with a fast, easy, and consistent service consumed in code.
Business Outcomes
  • Eliminate hassle and risks of requesting and installing keys and certificates with native Terraform integration

  • Elastically scale development without the constraints of traditional certificate pipelines

  • Enable InfoSec and AppDev teams to work together seamlessly

Integration Features
  • Fully automate the certificate issuance process for developers using Terraform

  • Enable crypto-agility through Venafi's native and partner-built CA integrations

Solution Overview

Security teams must know what to trust and what not to trust at all times to effectively protect machine identities in dynamic environments. As a result, smart policy enforcement must be automated and embedded into the tools used by application development teams. By shifting machine identity processes left into the pre-production phase and hooking directly into automated DevOps workflows, security teams can regain control over X.509 certificates in fully automated environments.

Together, Venafi and HashiCorp deliver the platforms that empower DevOps and security teams to be successful in this multi-cloud generation. Infrastructure and applications can be built, secured and connected safely and at the speed today’s DevOps teams expect. Application development teams no longer have to be concerned with the details of X.509 certificates when consuming a common service from the security team using Venafi. Security teams maintain smart policy enforcement so their compliance and threat protection responsibilities to the business and customers are always met.

As a common service across clouds, HashiCorp delivers consistent workflows to provision, secure, connect, and run any infrastructure for any application. Venafi integrates with HashiCorp to protect machine identities by delivering visibility, intelligence and automation for X.509 certificates. Venafi also seamlessly makes available a rich ecosystem of more than 40 certificate authorities from within HashiCorp modules, making both private and public trust certificates easy to consume.
