I always found it quite strange and not very secure to just put my plaintext passwords into a configuration file. That’s why I would be very interested in having an integration with eg Bitwarden to automatically get my password out of the Bitwarden Vault. This would also make it possible to change any password, without changing the configuration file of HA.
- Get username/password/token/… from Bitwarden vault
- Approve which passwords can be requested by HA and which not (could be done by adding the approved ones into an organisation for example)
- Both self-hosted as Bitwarden’s web vault compatible
This Feature request is NOT the same like this addon: Home Assistant Community Add-on: Bitwarden RS. The addon from @frenck is purely to make it easy to self-host the Bitwarden Vault. My Feature request is to enable Home Assistant requesting passwords from Bitwarden, like we currently can via credstash.
I’m not too technical on this aspect, but there’s a powerful, full-featured command-line interface (CLI) tool to access and manage your Bitwarden vault: https://help.bitwarden.com/article/cli/
What do you guys think? I believe this could increase the security heavily.
