Azure Active Directory Authentication for SQL Database V12
In this episode of Data Exposed I sit down with Mirek Sztajno, a Senior Program Manager on the SQL Security team to discuss identify authentication around the exciting news of Azure Active Directory support for Azure SQL Database V12. Currently in public preview, this exciting new functionality allows you to connect to Azure SQL Database by using Azure Active Directory authentication, enabling SQL authentication to user and group identities managed by Azure Active Directory. Mirek explains that this feature currently supports the following authentication methods: user/password, integrated Windows authentication and coming soon token based authentication.
Mirek wraps up this fantastic episode by giving a great demo of this feature, showing us how to enable and use AAD authentication for Azure SQL DB.
