What are the secrets stored?

IDHub needs to store the secret in a secure vault, so that the data can be transferred securely between IDHub and the target system and vice-versa. IDHub is storing the secrets for the connector via HashiCorp. We are providing a free 30 trial period of Vault Subscription. If you already have your own Vault then you can also your own Vault and connect to that for storing secrets.


IDHub will soon release in-house vault service using which you can use to store secrets within IDHub’s own vault without purchasing additional vault subscription.
