The Red Hat Certified Ansible Specialist Exam (EX407) requires an understanding of working with confidential data within Ansible. This Learning Activity goes over how you can use the ansible-vault command to encrypt sensitive files within a vault file and also how to work with those vault files in an Ansible playbook. The exercise assumes basic proficiency with several common ansible modules and general ansible playbook use. Upon completing the learning activity, you will have developed an improved understanding of ansible-vault and vault files.
