How can we improve Azure Storage?

make it possible to use SSL on blob storage using custom domains

Currently you can use SSL but you have to user the standard URL. You can create a CNAME to your storage account but most browsers complain that the traffic was rerouted and is possibly an attack. There should be a way to install a domain certificate to your containers.

        Any update? This is quite a basic requirement for any self respecting business site.

        Microsoft , I hope you can add this function , Azure storage blob using sustom domains .

        SSL is already in use on the storage accounts https://mydomain.blob.core.windows.net/
        So why is it not readily available for custom domains with SSL?
        We require this asap, current site is SSL and get the dreaded message in console (The page at 'https://mydomain'; was loaded over HTTPS, but displayed insecure content from 'http://myblobaccount/images/...': this content should also be loaded over HTTPS.

        Microsoft, when is this going to happen?

        Under review 8 months ago, can we have an update? SSL is becoming increasingly important especially for business services in the cloud.

        Pretty shocked that this isnt possible already. My app has been using http for 2+ years and now im faced with losing all my custom image URLs, or sticking with HTTP (and hence no social login)

        I am not an expert, hardly even an enthusiastic amateur, however my understanding is, to support this:
        - you would need to give your private key to Azure
        - or alternatively the Azure ops team would need to be able to apply for SSL cert using your top level domain
        - or the Azure platform could generate a certificate using your custom domain name and clients would receive certificate warnings
        - or Verisign/Thawte would need to provide the Azure team with their private key for them to generate legit certificates

        If my understanding is correct, none of these options is something I would be comfortable with. Happy to be educated if there is indeed a secure way to achieve this.

        Yes, I think this should be a good idea can have a custom ssl in Blob Storage.
        I'm waiting for this solution, perhaps..

        This is for one of my projects an absolute 'must', uploading certificates like we do with cloud services shouldn't be that hard to implement

        I certainly agree with this if you are trying to do ecommerce. I am surprised that the Azure team did not see this coming considering the importance of security and user experience going on there internally

        I second this. Using the standard URL is a workaround, but it would be nice to be able to use a CNAME to access blob containers with encryption.
