Vault is a tool for securely accessing secrets.

A modern system requires access to a multitude of secrets: database credentials, API keys for external services, credentials for service-oriented architecture communication, etc. Understanding who is accessing what secrets is already very difficult and platform-specific. Adding on key rolling, secure storage, and detailed audit logs is almost impossible without a custom solution. This is where Vault steps in.

This snap is maintained by Canonical.


  • To start the Vault service, edit the configuration file at /var/snap/vault/common/vault.hcl and start the service with sudo snap start vault.vaultd.

  • To use the Vault Client, run vault commands. For example: vault status.
