A CLI to interact with HashiCorp Vault.

  • Connect to a Vault server and initialize a new encrypted data store:
    vault init
  • Unseal (unlock) the vault, by providing one of the key shares needed to access the encrypted data store:
    vault unseal key-share-x
  • Authenticate the CLI client against the Vault server, using an authentication token:
    vault auth authentication_token
  • Store a new secret in the vault, using the generic back-end called "secret":
    vault write secret/hello value=world
  • Read a value from the vault, using the generic back-end called "secret":
    vault read secret/hello
  • Seal (lock) the Vault server, by removing the encryption key of the data store from memory:
    vault seal
