Keys are always needed to access services in Azure and beyond. Storing and managing keys presents many problems, for example rotating and disabling them. Keys often also allow blanket access to the service with no way to limit it. Sometimes there is only one key that needs to be shared by services, so you won’t have any way to disable access from one individually.
In this talk we will go through Managed Identities for Azure Resources, how they work, and how you can use them to use Azure services in a secure way without having to manage any keys yourself. We will go through a demo application which uses various Azure services through a managed identity, removing the need to use keys entirely. The source code will be available to the audience so they have samples that they can use to implement managed identities in their own applications.
Benefits of Attending this Session:
- Learn to use Azure services without needing secrets and increase the security of your apps
- See a sample application using Managed Identities in practice
- Learn what Managed Identities are and how they work
