Venafi-Vault Wizard
Updated Apr. 28 2021

OpenCredo returns for a second Development Fund project, creating a Venafi and HashiCorp Vault Wizard. Some Venafi customers have noted it can be difficult to successfully set up and verify the configuration between Vault and Venafi. This project seeks to solve these challenge by taking the guess work and difficulty out of connecting and testing integrations between Venafi and HashiCorp Vault.
Solution Overview

Vault has many moving parts, Venafi configuration is detailed, and a fair amount of the process can be error-prone. While there are guides which can be followed, it would be far easier if there were a programmatic way of configuring the setup and assessing whether the setup is correct and integration is working as expected. This project seeks to solve these challenges by taking the guess work and difficulty out of connecting and testing integration between Venafi and HashiCorp Vault.  Specifically, the Venafi-Vault Wizard will allow users to:  

  • Automatically configure the Venafi Secrets Engine for HashiCorp Vault or Vault Engine Monitor with Venafi Trust Protection Platform and Venafi-as-a-Service
  • Verify that HashiCorp Vault is configured to use the Venafi Secrets Engine or Venafi Monitor Engine and follow best practices
