Dynamic Secrets

Dynamic secrets are secrets that are generated every time they are accessed, using permissions you've defined in advance. In this way, users can access a resource for a temporary period of time with a defined set of permissions. You can configure multiple dynamic secrets for the same resource in order to granularly control the breadth of access.

To create a dynamic secret, you need to configure the required account and access credentials. The Akeyless Vault platform uses these to communicate with the resource and get short-lived passwords as required. You can configure:


The configuration required to produce dynamic secrets is part of your private network, and are stored on the Akeyless Gateway.

As with static secrets, you then need to add the dynamic secret to an Access Role with the appropriate permissions.
