Key Vault: How to Safeguard Your Secrets
Developing applications in a team environment can make identity and secret management difficult. Even if you trust your team with the keys to the kingdom, managing how and when those keys are used can be problematic at best. Using tools like Azure Key Vault streamlines and safeguards the management of those secrets.
Azure Key Vault is a way to safely secure things like API keys, SSL certs, and cryptographic keys. It adds an extra layer of security by allowing applications or team members a way to use those secrets without having access to them.
Barring security concerns, how else could you utilize Key Vault? Key Vault can help manage and segregate testing and production API keys. That means developers can build, test, and deploy applications without managing things like environment variables or configuration files. Key vault abstracts the complexity of key management away from the developers to help reduce the risk of mistakes.
Using a secret management system like Azure Key Vault can help streamline processes and maintain safety compliance in your organization. It is a tool that can easily be integrated into any hybrid or cloud environment.
