[ANN] Vault 1.5.4 Released

Hi folks,

The Vault team is happy to announce the release of Vault 1.5.4!

There is security content pertaining to batch token expiration in this release; see the SECURITY section of the Changelog at [3] for details.

Open-source binaries can be downloaded at [1]. Enterprise binaries are available to customers as well.

As a reminder, if you believe you have found a security issue in Vault, please responsibly disclose by emailing security@hashicorp.com and do not use the public issue tracker. Our security policy and our PGP key can be found at [2].

Key fixes and improvements in this release are enumerated below.

  • Replication : We fixed a bug which prevented replication from functioning when filtered path evaluation failed
  • UI : We fixed a bug where a dropdown for identity/entity management did not reflect actual policies
  • Kubernetes Auth Engine : We added an option to disable defaulting to the local CA cert and service account JWT
  • Plugin Reload : We fixed two issues related to cluster-wide plugin reload cleanup
  • Metrics : We’ve disabled usage metrics collection on performance standby nodes and fixed a crash if metrics collection encountered zero-length keys in KV store
  • GCP Secrets Engine: We added a check for 403 during rollbacks to prevent repeated deletion calls
  • AWS Credentials : We added X-Amz-Content_sha256 as a default STS request header

See the Changelog at [3] for the full list of improvements and bug fixes.

OSS [5] and Enterprise [6] Docker images will be available soon.


See [4] for general upgrade instructions.

As always, we recommend upgrading and testing this release in an isolated environment. If you experience any non-security issues, please report them on the Vault GitHub issue tracker or post to the Vault Discuss Forum at [7].

We hope you enjoy Vault 1.5.4!

Sincerely, The Vault Team
