On behalf of the community, I am pleased to announce the first milestone releases of Spring Vault and Spring Cloud Vault 1.0.0.M1.

The artifacts are available in the Milestone repo.

Spring Vault is a client for HashiCorp Vault that provides familiar Spring abstractions. It comes with @VaultPropertySource that exposes encrypted properties from Vault the Environment and VaultTemplate to access secrets stored and encrypted inside Vault.

@Configuration
@VaultPropertySource("secret/my-application")
public class AppConfig extends AbstractVaultConfiguration {

    /**
     * Specify an endpoint for connecting to Vault.
     */
    @Override
    public VaultEndpoint vaultEndpoint() {
        return VaultEndpoint.create("localhost", 8200);
    }

    /**
     * Configure a client authentication.
     */
    @Override
    public ClientAuthentication clientAuthentication() {
        return new TokenAuthentication("…");
    }
}

Spring Cloud Vault uses Spring Vault to provide a configuration integration for Spring Boot-based applications. Spring Cloud Vault provides configuration data to applications that is encrypted inside Vault. Applications using Spring Cloud Vault can request generated credentials from Vault for various database and service integrations, like MySQL, MongoDB, Consul, AWS, and many more. On application shutdown, these credentials are revoked and no longer valid.

Adding the spring-cloud-vault-starter-config dependency and supplying Vault connection details to the bootstrap configuration is sufficient to get started with Spring Cloud Vault.

<dependencies>
    <dependency>
        <groupId>org.springframework.cloud</groupId>
        <artifactId>spring-cloud-vault-starter-config</artifactId>
        <version>1.0.0.M1</version>
    </dependency>
</dependencies>
spring.cloud.vault:
    host: localhost
    authentication: (TOKEN|APPROLE|AWS_EC2|CERT|…)
    token: …
