I would like to implement Vault in my development environment. I wonder what the best practices are to initially enter data into secret managment systems. The admin can always manually enter the data into the tool, but are there more secure and more importantly, if the admin is unavailable, a better way to do so?

I am thinking token authentication in Vault might be a good fit, but that too requires the manual interaction of the admin.

Please edit the question to limit it to a specific problem with enough detail to identify an adequate answer. Avoid asking multiple distinct questions at once.

  • You should make the question much more specific. This seems like you have done no research on the topic, you did not share anything about your own environment. These things would constrain the answer. – Jiri Klouda Aug 14 '18 at 23:15
