Managing Kuma Tokens with HashiCorp Vault

Managing Kuma Tokens with HashiCorp Vault

Nov 3, 2022

Managing tokens in Kuma can be a challenging and manual process. Both the user and dataplane token lifetimes need to be manually tracked and managed. This ultimately becomes a burden for DevOps, and long life tokens end up being used.

In this session, you will learn how to:

  • Leverage a secret engine like Hashicorp Vault to automate Kuma access and token management.
  • Dynamically create, manage, rotate, and revoke both user and dataplane tokens based on lifetime.
  • Set up auto-rotation for simple management of shorter TTL Tokens.
  • Leverage different auth methods for token requests — for example, Github for users or IAM for services.
