Get your credentials in Azure without knowing the credentials

Filed under: Uncategorized @ 11:36 am

Microsoft just released a preview of the Azure AD Managed Service Identity (MSI) feature.  What this will allow you to do is to completely stop having to store credentials either in code (which is a MAJOR no-no) , in your config file (slightly better), or anywhere else.  Azure will generate a “bootstrap identity” which can then be used to access other Azure features to get information.  If you need to store a password for a 3rd party system, you could place it in the Azure Key Vault and use MSI to get access to the Key Vault without having to save the Key Vault access codes anywhere.

Just another way Microsoft is making Azure more and more secure.
