kandi X-RAY | vault Summary

vault is a Go library typically used in Security, Identity Management applications. vault has no bugs, it has a Weak Copyleft License and it has medium support. However vault has 1 vulnerabilities. You can download it from GitHub.
Please note: We take Vault's security and our users' trust very seriously. If you believe you have found a security issue in Vault, please responsibly disclose by contacting us at security@hashicorp.com. Vault is a tool for securely accessing secrets. A secret is anything that you want to tightly control access to, such as API keys, passwords, certificates, and more. Vault provides a unified interface to any secret, while providing tight access control and recording a detailed audit log. 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.

vault Key Features

Website: https://www.vaultproject.io

Announcement list: Google Groups

Discussion forum: Discuss

Documentation: https://www.vaultproject.io/docs/

Tutorials: HashiCorp's Learn Platform

Certification Exam: Vault Associate

Secure Secret Storage: Arbitrary key/value secrets can be stored in Vault. Vault encrypts these secrets prior to writing them to persistent storage, so gaining access to the raw storage isn't enough to access your secrets. Vault can write to disk, Consul, and more.

Dynamic Secrets: Vault can generate secrets on-demand for some systems, such as AWS or SQL databases. For example, when an application needs to access an S3 bucket, it asks Vault for credentials, and Vault will generate an AWS keypair with valid permissions on demand. After creating these dynamic secrets, Vault will also automatically revoke them after the lease is up.

Data Encryption: Vault can encrypt and decrypt data without storing it. This allows security teams to define encryption parameters and developers to store encrypted data in a location such as a SQL database without having to design their own encryption methods.

Leasing and Renewal: All secrets in Vault have a lease associated with it. At the end of the lease, Vault will automatically revoke that secret. Clients are able to renew leases via built-in renew APIs.

Revocation: Vault has built-in support for secret revocation. Vault can revoke not only single secrets, but a tree of secrets, for example all secrets read by a specific user, or all secrets of a particular type. Revocation assists in key rolling as well as locking down systems in the case of an intrusion.

QUESTION

ansible replace `--ask-pass` with a vaulted password

Asked 2022-Mar-31 at 15:55
Any variable to replace --ask-pass, such as ansible_become_pass replaces --ask-become-pass ? I'm on Ansible 2.9

Playbook name: itop_db.yml

The playbook:

 - name: configure DB to listen
   hosts: itop_acc_db
   become: yes
   vars: vars.yml
   tasks:

     - name: configure DB
       lineinfile:
         path: /etc/my.cnf.d/server.cnf
         regexp: '^bind-address'
         line: bind-address={{ ansible_default_ipv4.address }}

Ansible hosts file:

all:
  hosts:
  children:
    itop_acc:
      hosts:
        hostname1.domain
    itop_pro:
      hosts:
        hostname2.domain
    itop_dev:
      hosts:
        hostname3.domain
    itop_acc_db:
      hosts:
        dbhostname1.domain ansible_ssh_pass=ansible_ssh_pas ansible_become_pass=ansible_become_pas

Vars file:

vars:
ansible_ssh_pas: vault_ansible_ssh_pass
ansible_become_pas: vault_ansible_become_pass

Vault file:

vault_ansible_ssh_pass: 'password'
vault_ansible_become_pass: 'password'

The command line:

ansible-playbook itop_db.yml --ask-pass --ask-become-pass

I am trying to replace the --ask-pass or -k option with a vaulted password so that the solution is completely automated without human interaction.

I can not change the fact that the target server authentication is password based only. The target server actually needs two passwords, one for ssh and one for sudo.

From the docs and Stackoverflow i think i understand how to replace the --ask-become-pass or -K with a vaulted password, using the ansible_become_pass variable.

I checked some pages here which gets me closer but not yet there. The link underneath rightly suggests to use the option -b, which eliminates the prompting of the become password. Is there any way to specify both ask-pass and ask-become-pass only once in Ansible?

This link suggests using ansible_become_pass for the --ask-become-pass Specify sudo password for Ansible

This link although around 8 years old, has the same question as me, but without answer. Ansible: ask-pass programmatically

After writing all this, i think it might replace --ask-pass with ansible_pass. Although i do not see that described at all anywhere.

Digging deeper i found this link which suggests using ansible_ssh_pass. https://serverfault.com/questions/628989/how-to-set-default-ansible-username-password-for-ssh-connection

I have tried the setup as described above but i still get a password prompt when executing the playbook mentioned.

Any help or hints are welcome.

Answered 2022-Mar-31 at 15:55

ansible_ssh_pass or ansible_password should do it. It can be defined in the inventory file as documented here. Or in ansible.cfg file, more details here. The ansible-playbook flag --connection-password-file can also be used after storing password in a file. More details here. Its also recommended to use encrytion to store sensitive information. Best practice is to use vault in group_vars, as mentioned here. Hope this helps.
