This week you will learn about Dynamic Secrets. Unlike key/value secrets where you had to put data into the store yourself, dynamic secrets are generated when they are accessed. Dynamic secrets do not exist until they are read, so there is no risk of someone stealing them or another client using the same secrets. Because Vault has built-in revocation mechanisms, dynamic secrets can be revoked immediately after use, minimizing the amount of time the secret existed.
This week we will use interactive labs to learn more about HCP Vault.
Let’s get started!
