  • A great repository for credentials and secrets.
  • Good scalability with its own clustering solution and high availability.
  • Easy to install like other Hashicorp products, it is based on just one executable.
  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Vault requires a complex setup when getting started.
  • Vault requires decisions around the backend type to be made up front.
  • Vault tokens appear to be managed manually in most cases.

  • HashiCorp Vault manages secrets extremely well.
  • It works well as a cloud-agnostic or multi-cloud solution.
  • HashiCorp Vault works extremely well with other HashiCorp products.
  • Vault integrates with other systems very well because everything is API driven.
  • It doesn't have an interface. This isn't entirely bad because of the purpose it serves, but it does make the barrier to entry a little difficult.
  • Unlike many other HashiCorp products, the documentation feels like it leaves some steps out. Step by step documentation lowers the barriers to entry a little bit, and going through even the installation documentation and setup leaves a little bit of the caveats out.
  • It needs a fair bit of supporting infrastructure. You cannot just have a Vault instance. Having a HashiCorp Vault instance means also having a consul cluster for the backend.

  • Automated revocation of credentials via leases
  • Provides many plugins for federated authorization through different platforms
  • Dynamic credential generation
  • Documentation for the API moves slower than changes in the API itself
  • The database secret engine's API design isn't as elegant as it could be
  • No support for revocation of all secrets under one path
