About this webcast
HashiCorp Vault is a popular key management service (KMS) to manage and protect your sensitive data, such as tokens, passwords, certificates, and encryption keys.
In this webcast, you deploy a Vault instance to Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud by using a Helm chart and enable authentication via Kubernetes. You deploy a Guestbook application and configure it to access encrypted secrets from the internal Vault server instance by using the Vault Agent Injector.
The Vault Agent Injector injects two sidecar containers: an
init container that prepopulates a shared memory volume with the requested secrets and a
sidecar container to authenticate and render secrets to the same location as the pod runs. The application accesses secrets via the shared memory volume.
This webcast uses a free OpenShift cluster with an IBM Cloud Pay-As-You-Go account. Register for a free IBM Cloud account to get started. Then, follow this guide to upgrade your account to a Pay-As-You-Go account.
