[ANN] Vault 1.7.2 Released

Hi folks,

The Vault team is happy to announce the release of Vault 1.7.2!

There is security content pertaining to token expiry under some circumstances 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].

The key fixes and improvements in this release are:

  • Core : We added an option to allow hostname and Raft node ID to be returned in response headers
  • Core : We fixed a bug that prevented password policies from being used within namespaces
  • Integrated Storage: We fixed a bug that would cause problems if node IP addresses didn’t match between the internal raft state and the configuration files
  • UI : We fixed some namespace-related UI bugs

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 1.7.2!

Sincerely, The Vault Team

I build from source, so when will the source code be available on github?

Hi @DrDaveD,

I’ve also commented on the other post (Source code lagging behind security release announcement - #3 by mladlow), but I wanted to follow up here for good measure.

Signed tags are now available (Releases · hashicorp/vault · GitHub). We have rotated the PGP key used to sign the tags, so you may wish to grab a new key to verify. The new public key is available at Security at HashiCorp, as well as Keybase and other PGP key servers.
