Personal-files request for vht


#1

vht requires access to the $HOME/.vault-token so the credentials for vault can be read automatically.

personal-files:
read:
- $HOME/.vault-token


#2

Is there more information required?


#3

Can you please explain what vht does and where $HOME/.vault-token originates from and hence why vht requires access to this? When a user install vht would they expect and find it unsurprising that it then is automatically granted access to this?


#4

It’s a small helper tool for interaction with Hashicorp Vault, it allows functionality that is currently not present in the application.

Github: https://github.com/ilijamt/vht

When you login into Hashicorp Vault a token is generated and stored in $HOME/.vault-token, after which it’s used to authenticate with the Vault backend.


#5

Is vht affiliated with Hashicorp vault in any way?
