(EN) Secure Password Vaults with Naemon
All monitoring systems are a preferred target for malicious intruders because they have access to many interesting things in your network. And they store many many passwords for websites, SNMP credentials for network devices, etc… And usually they are stored in plain text and they
are not hard to find either.
So to make things a bit harder for black hats, Naemon introduces the Vault API for secure
storage of passwords and other things you won’t like to store in plain text.
This talk introduces the API and gives some examples of how to use it.
