Hi, I would like to use HashiCorp to store the private key for an Ethereum wallet (UTC, deterministric wallet). My question is probably an faq. When I read the private key from the vault to use it in a script, this is of course visible, at least to the linux user running the script. Which are the other measure that I should put in place to be sure that the private key is not compromised? Thanks
Are you referring to a random string that you’d like to store in Vault and then ensure that its not accessed or edited in some way - is that the idea? - not sure of the key formats applicable in Ethereum.
One way might be to have a read-only user after creation with wrapping of the data would give a once only access when unwrapped (needs renewing after access).
