Week 2 - Wrap-Up
This week you explored deploying and configuring Vault Enterprise based on a best practice reference architecture. Registry modules were introduced and how they can be used for setting up a vault deployment quickly. We also discussed the considerations and potential approaches to upgrade your existing Vault OSS cluster to Vault Enterprise and gave platform-specific examples in AWS and GCP environments.
Week 3 of your onboarding journey includes learning about the fundamentals of Vault secrets management. Week 3 also includes learning about horizontal scaling with performance standby nodes and how they are used as a centralized secrets store with localized differences such as policies. You’ll create policies and learn how they are used with Vault’s identity-based structure. Also, we will discuss multi-factor authentication and the SSH secrets engine.
