Easier Vault Management with Vault’s Identity System

Jeff Mitchell

Vault Team Lead at HashiCorp

Vault’s Identity system is a powerful way to manage Vault users. It takes an abstract and agnostic view to the source of third-party identity information, but provides flexible ways to tie this information to Vault authorization grants. In this talk, Jeff will explain the design of the system, including the motivating factors and targeted users. He will also show how you can use Identity to significantly ease the burden of managing Vault authorization.
