HashiCorp Vault

HashiCorp Vault, in my opinion, is a defacto standard for any cloud or automation implementation. They're the best of the best as far as products for secrets management and the ability to use it against relatively any service you have is unheard of for other products. HashiCorp has really taken out all the stops when it comes to creating a nice, extensible tool that people can use to suit their needs.

Well suited for storing passwords used for business purposes that require additional security above and beyond browser password storage. It's also convenient for sharing passwords across a team or a company. It would be less suitable for storing only personally used passwords (even for business purposes) due to the extra setup required. (Although if you use the passwords in a variety of applications, it would still be an improvement.)

Pros

HashiCorp Vault

  • The HTTP API you use to write and read secrets is open and can be used by any application.
  • It keeps our sensitive data/credentials out of our GitLab repositories.
  • Sealing and unsealing the Vault on demand adds an additional layer of security.

KeePass

  • KeePass offers us a simple to use interface to store our passwords in a centralized location.
  • I particularly like the fact that it allows you to obfuscate the username/password.
  • The feature for copy/paste the credentials is also a very handy ability that helps to save us time.
  • The ability to include URL and expiration dates is also great to have.
  • It also has an option to randomly-generate passwords for you.

Cons

HashiCorp Vault

  • Documentation could be better.
  • The multiple key unseal process can be a problem if the need arises.
  • It would make more sense if HashiCorp Vault combined with HashiCorp Consul to create a unique product.

KeePass

  • Keepass is kept locally on your computer. It takes a cloud service in order to keep it current on multiple computers.
  • Some websites do not work with the autofill feature in KeePass. Instead, you will find yourself on the reset password page. KeePass doesn't try to read the website before it pushes the autofill data.
  • The file on your computer is encrypted, but it is local and fairly easy to find on your computer.

HashiCorp Vault is the best there is out there, and it has become critical to our secret management use cases. It would be difficult to find anything that would suit our needs better and that would be beneficial for us to switch over to.

We spent a little more time than we imagined to conceptually understand how HashiCorp Vault operates, as well as how it is configured. This is not trivial, and keep in mind that you will need to take some time to get a thorough understanding of the tool. The documentation could be more helpful in this regard.

Hashicorp has been very responsive to our questions and inquiries up to this point. We are currently working on them to develop a more granular permissions model within Vault. We are very close to achieving our objectives with the help of their support team. We do not seem to be in the same time zone which makes it hard for escalated issues.

I have almost never had to contact support. This product has a wide community, a very expansive documentation/forum site where generally any question/issue already has an answer/fix or explanation/workaround, or plans for improvement in a future version. On the occasions that I have reached out, answers were fairly quick, useful, and respectful.

Alternatives Considered

HashiCorp Vault

As mentioned before, HashiCorp Vault really is the best in its class. Having used other secrets management tools, HashiCorp has really made Vault the easiest to use in a cross-compatibility function, in a multi-cloud/hybrid environment, and in multiple fashions. Many other tools simply solve a single problem (like encrypted data bags within Chef) but do not help with cross-application compatibility. Using HashiCorp Vault, it's easy to integrate everything through it so you do not have any secrets being exposed. It also gives you a single standardized process so there isn't much guesswork. That alone can aid in making your environment more secure.
