A cross-platform .NET Library for HashiCorp's Vault - A Secret Management System.

What is VaultSharp?

  • VaultSharp is a .NET Standard 1.3 (and .NET 4.5) cross-platform C# Library that can be used in any .NET application to interact with Hashicorp's Vault.
  • The Vault system is a secret management system built as an Http Service by Hashicorp.

VaultSharp has been re-designed ground up, to give a structured user experience across the various auth methods, secrets engines & system apis. Also, the Intellisense on IVaultClient class should help. I have tried to add a lot of documentation.

Give me a quick snippet for use!

  • Add a Nuget reference to VaultSharp as follows Install-Package VaultSharp -Version <latest_version>
  • Instantiate a IVaultClient as follows:
// Initialize one of the several auth methods.
IAuthMethodInfo authMethod = new TokenAuthMethodInfo("MY_VAULT_TOKEN");

// Initialize settings. You can also set proxies, custom delegates etc. here.
var vaultClientSettings = new VaultClientSettings("https://MY_VAULT_SERVER:8200", authMethod);

IVaultClient vaultClient = new VaultClient(vaultClientSettings);

// Use client to read a key-value secret.
var kv2Secret = await vaultClient.V1.Secrets.KeyValue.V2.ReadSecretAsync("secret-name");

// Generate a dynamic Consul credential
var consulCreds = await vaultClient.V1.Secrets.Consul.GetCredentialsAsync(consulRole, consulMount);	
var consulToken = consulCredentials.Data.Token;

Gist of the features

  • VaultSharp 0.11.x supports
    • All the Auth Methods for Logging into Vault. (AliCloud, AppRole, AWS, Azure, GitHub, Google Cloud, JWT/OIDC, Kubernetes, LDAP, Okta, RADIUS, TLS, Tokens & UserPass)
    • All the secret engines to get dynamic credentials. (AD, AWS, Azure, EC2 and IAM, Consul, Cubbyhole, Databases, Google Cloud, Key-Value, Nomad, PKI, RabbitMQ, SSH and TOTP)
    • Several system APIs including enterprise vault apis
  • You can also bring your own "Auth Method" by providing a custom delegate to fetch a token from anywhere.
  • VaultSharp has first class support for Consul engine.
  • KeyValue engine supports both v1 and v2 apis.
  • Abundant intellisense.
  • Provides hooks into http-clients to set custom proxy settings etc.
