Thanks Jim,

On the related topic of storing application credentials (i.e. how to store
the credentials/tokens an application uses to authenticate to datastores
and other apps etc..), has anyone investigated https://www.vaultproject.io/
? and if so what were your thoughts on it?

Kind regards
Sherif Mansour
