Thanks!
I am reading this document and there are some things I need to ask clarification for: * In "Vault password and secret key" you describe a mechanism where you store a hash of the password used to generate the secret key, why ? What's the purpose ? * Why shared vaults need to be in a /shared/ namespace ? Can't a user create a vault and then share it with other users ? Ie should the fact a vault is shared just a property that can be changed at any time ? If not, why not ? * In "Listing secrets in a vault " it seem that the metadata about various secrets is obtainable in the clear, is that so ? I am not sure it is a good idea to give blatant hints about what is being encrypted in the vault. * In "Modifying a secret" you use "ipa vault-secret-del" but you mean -mod I guess. * Why services are in the /shared/ namespace ? * The paragraph "Changing service vault password" confuses me, is it correct ? I have not fully internalized all there is there, but most of it looks quite good.
