Hello everyone,

We are very happy to invite you to our first Vault event!

Integrating HashiCorp Vault and k8s apps - no code changes needed!

HashiCorp Vault allows shifting the way we work with secrets from static to a dynamic paradigm. The lifecycle of the secret in those two paradigms is different which brings new challenges:

* How do you authenticate apps in Vault?
* How do you get an initial token?
* How to read secrets from Vault?
* How to keep token and secrets renewed?
* How and when revoke token and secrets?

That seems to be very different from typical 12-factor apps setup when an app would simply read configuration and secrets from environment variables, isn't it? Should you do a library to encapsulate this logic? Or is there an SDK available?

Good news - there is a way to address all questions above for k8s apps with very little or no code changes at all!

During this presentation, we will go through the setup in nitty-gritty details of implementation so you can repeat the same steps at home/work.
