Integrating Invicti Enterprise with Azure Key Vault

This document is for:
Invicti Enterprise On-Demand, Invicti Enterprise On-Premises

You can integrate Invicti Enterprise with Azure Key Vault to scan your web applications without providing sensitive credentials.

  • Azure Key Vault is a cloud service to store and access your secrets in a secure way.
  • A secret is anything that you want to tightly control access to, such as API keys, passwords, certificates, or cryptographic keys.
  • The Key Vault safeguarded those secrets by industry-standard algorithms, key lengths, and even hardware security modules.

Invicti Enterprise can integrate with Azure Key Vault, so you do not need to provide sensitive credentials to scan your web application, websites, and API.

This article explains how to integrate Invicti Enterprise with Azure Key Vault.

For further information, see What Systems Does Invicti Integrate With? and Privileged Access Management and Invicti.

The Azure Key Vault is a part of Early Access features. To enroll, contact Invicti Support.
