HashiCorp Vault Enterprise

HashiCorp Vault (referred to as Vault in this guide) protects your organization’s credentials and confidential assets and provides secure access control to them through a process of secret leasing, renewal, and revocation. nCipher Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) provide unrestricted, FIPS, or Common Criteria certified solutions to securely generate, encrypt, and decrypt the keys which form the foundation of the HashiCorp Vault protection mechanism. The nShield HSM secures the key used to seal or unseal a Vault instance. The HSM wraps the Vault master key and provides the means for automatically sealing (encrypting) and unsealing (decrypting) it.
