Boston, November 9, 2021 – GMO GlobalSign, a global Certificate Authority (CA) and leading provider of digital signing, identity and security solutions for the IoT, today announced a partnership with HashiCorp. As part of the partnership, DevOps users of HashiCorp Vault now have access to GlobalSign’s Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) platform, Atlas, via the Atlas Vault plug-in. This enables HashiCorp Vault users to securely request a variety of certificates from the Atlas environment.
HashiCorp Vault is an identity-based security solution that leverages trusted sources of identity to keep secrets and application data secure. A secret is anything that you want to tightly control access to, such as API keys, passwords, or certificates. Through Vault, users can request X.509 certificates from a configured back-end provider via the newly developed GlobalSign plug-in.
“We are pleased to partner with GlobalSign on this new HashiCorp Vault integration, which provides DevOps professionals with a solution for enrollment, issuance, listing and revocation of a wide variety of certificates issued by the Atlas Platform,” said Asvin Ramesh, Sr. Director, Technology Alliances, HashiCorp.
Atlas is GlobalSign’s next-generation, high-speed cloud certificate management engine. With the integration to Atlas, developers are able to continue using HashiCorp Vault to distribute PKI certificates and can now:
- Enable and configure an Atlas plug-in within Vault
- Issue a certificate from Atlas for a JSON Payload
- Issue a certificate from Atlas for a provided CSR
- Revoke a certificate issued through the Atlas Hashicorp Vault Module
- List certificates issues through the Atlas Hashicorp Vault Module
“We are very pleased to integrate HashiCorp Vault with Atlas. This will make it easy for DevOps teams to request certificates from Vault and create CSRs, which can then be sent to Atlas for validation and certificate request fulfilment,” said Siddharth Prasad, Product Manager, GlobalSign. “This new capability provides technical professionals responsible for DevSecOps with an API-enabled secrets management tool with the ability to dynamically generate, access, manage and store secrets without embedding the sensitive information in code, configuration or build scripts. DevOps professionals will be better equipped to handle machine identities with the autonomy and speed the industry demands without disrupting the automated DevOps workflows since HashiCorp Vault is integrated with multiple tools across the CI/CD toolchain.”
