This API allows an LCDN operator to configure the AMC to communicate with an external secret store for storing TLS secrets. The API supports only secret stores based on Hashicorp-Vault. Hashicorp-Vault is an open source secret management solution that secures, stores, and controls access to tokens, passwords, certificates, API keys and other secrets. For more information about Hashicorp-Vault, see the Hashicorp site.

The Aura LCDN supports HTTPS traffic delivery for Content Providers. HTTPS traffic delivery requires that HPC nodes use TLS certificates signed by trusted Certificate Authorities. The TLS certificates and associated private keys are collectively referred to as secrets.
