Play Episode 169: Azure Key Vault with Sumedh Barde


In this episode Chris Risner and Haishi Bai are joined by Sumedh Barde, Program Manager on the Azure Security team.  Sumedh joins us to talk about Azure Key Vault, a new technology for storing sensitive keys and secrets within Azure.  Key Vault offers the ability to store secrets which you can programmatically retrieve from your applications without allowing people that shouldn't have access to them to see them.  For example, you can store your production database connection string in Key Vault and retrieve it from your web application so that you aren't placing that key into a web configuration file or giving non-secure people access to it.  Key Vault also enables you to store keys which are stored within Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) so that all use of the key (encrypting or decrypting data) is always done in the HSM and is never retrieved by your applications or people.
