Vault 1.8.3 released

Hi folks,

The Vault team is happy to announce the release of Vault 1.8.3!

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 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: Fix a bug where password generation using password policies with namespaces could fail in some cases.
  • Integrated Storage: We fixed some integrated storage bugs in auto snapshots
  • OpenLDAP Secrets & DB Secrets: Fix a bug where under specific circumstances the automatic rotation of static role credentials may occur prematurely.
  • PKI: Vault now allows signing self-issued certificates with an algorithm specified in a Consul template

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 1.8.3!

Sincerely, The Vault Team
