A modern system requires access to a multitude of secrets: database
credentials, API keys for external services, credentials for service-oriented

is already very difficult and platform-specific. Adding on key rolling,
secure storage, and detailed audit logs is almost impossible without a custom
solution. This is where Vault steps in.
