  1. Accessing KeyVault from HDInsight cluster

    My team is starting a new project which involves running .NET app on HDI cluster. Accessing KeyVault from Windows machines require certificates, but this is not feasible from Linux VMs in HDI which doesn't have support for certificate store. Does anyone solved similar problem?
    During investigation, I came across this (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/key-vault/tutorial-net-linux-virtual-machine). Didn't tried it myself, but my colleague said it didn't work for him. If it is possible to configure service identity on HDI worker nodes, I would love to hear. Thanks.

  2. Allow Keyvault purge when 'purge protection' is enabled

    Purge protection is a required setting for our InfoSec team. Unfortunately we cannot move a keyvault from one region to another one, and we cannot completely get it purged (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/key-vault/key-vault-ovw-soft-delete / https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/keyvault/vaults/purgedeleted).
    There should be a mechanism/procedure to force a keyvault purge (even by raising an INC to MS)

  3. Support for Ed25519 SSH keys in Azure Key Vault

    as per https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/linux/mac-create-ssh-keys
    'Azure currently supports SSH protocol 2 (SSH-2) RSA public-private key pairs with a minimum length of 2048 bits. Other key formats such as ED25519 and ECDSA are not supported.'

    As ED25519 standard is more and more popular, also faster, more secure and supported out of the box on likes of Ubuntu and other platforms using latest OpenSSH it would be very handy addition.

  5. include functions as a trusted service in key vault firewall exceptions

    Include functions as a trusted service in key vault firewall exceptions. Why wouldn't you include all Azure services - unless we don't trust Azure PaaS anymore? ;-)

  6. Improve PowerShell error messages

    Hello,

    I found an issue that when calling get-AzKeyVaultSecret from PS, it returns useless error "forbidden". When instead I call az keyvault secret show from Bash, i get error that "IP address *** not allowed".

    PS Azure:> Get-AzKeyVaultSecret -vaultname tbtest3-kv
    Get-AzKeyVaultSecret : Operation returned an invalid status code 'Forbidden'
    At line:1 char:1
    + Get-AzKeyVaultSecret -vaultname tbtest3-kv
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo : CloseError: (:) [Get-AzKeyVaultSecret], KeyVaultErrorException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Microsoft.Azure.Commands.KeyVault.GetAzureKeyVaultSecret

    tomas@Azure:~$ az keyvault secret show --name "AppSecret" --vault-name "tbtest3-kv"
    Client address (137.117.226.47) is not authorized and caller is not a trusted service

    The IP restriction is intentional, but it appears so…

  7. Key Vault Service Limits

    The Key Vault limits are at a 10 second granularity but the granularity of its metrics are 1 minute. Please consider adjusting the limits to be in line with the granularity of the metrics available.

  8. Snapshot Entire Vault for Backup and Restore

    The current backup/restore solution for Keyvault keys, secrets and certs takes a lot of time to perform.
    It would be great if you could snapshot a whole Keyvault and save the backup. This would allow restore to use that backup snapshot.

  9. Soft-Deleting KeyVault should release the Resource name

    If I delete a KeyVault with "SoftDelete", it should be possible to create a new KeyVault with the same name.

    An internal versioning logic should be able to distinguish between the versions.

  10. Allow access to the public part of KEYS in KeyVault from ARM templates

    It would be very useful to be able to generate a key and then get the public portion to pass to the appSettings for another App.

    This is needed for secure deployments where some apps may be in different security 'zones' where they cannot have access to a shared key-vault.

    Generating a key would be useful, especially if we could request that one be generated only if it does not already exist.

    At the very least having access to the public portion of the key in the same way we have access to a secret would be very helpful:

                    "publicJsonKey"

  11. Add support for STORING the Storage Account Key in addition to rotating it.

    Add support for STORING the Storage Account Key in addition to rotating it. Rotating the key is only part of the issue for us, the other half is making it available to application teams in a manner that doesn't require us to give them direct access to each and every storage account at the azure resource level. We prefer to give the team a key vault and store the keys in the kv, which makes it simple for the application team to reference it. When it is updated, we update the kv and that's that.

  12. when remove blue print, please also remove policies it created

    We found that the policies we had created using blueprint were not cleared out when we removed the blueprint. We had to manually remove the policy from policies.

    We should automatically remove those blueprint created policies when delete a blueprint.

  14. Include Azure Automation on Key Vault Firewall under "Trusted Microsoft Services"

    Currently, Azure Automation accesses Azure Key Vaults through public endpoints (Azure Data Center Public IPs). As such, Automation cannot function unless a firewall exclusion is in place in the key vault settings. Unfortunately, Azure has hundreds of public IP addresses, which could change at a moments notice. This, in effect, negates use of the Key Vault firewall altogether and requires you to allow incoming untrusted networks.

    There is a firewall setting "Allow Trusted Microsoft Services", which allows select services to bypass the firewall. Automation is not included in this list. It would be a great help to include it; immediately…

  17. KeyVault's secrets improved usability with a Portal

    Adding secret with aplain text (not hashed like now).
    Easier getting secret value like icon on secrets list

    Currently you have to expose secret trying to get it value with a portal and it's secured / hashed when you try to add/change it

  18. Semicolon bug in Microsoft.Azure.Services.AppAuthentication

    Hi

    I have found a bug in Microsoft.Azure.Services.AppAuthentication package.

    When a {ClientSecret} is generated with a semicolon eg. )}/}I;:}=&GG8U{Zt;4+[Jd{
    you can reproduce the bug.

    I wanted to use AzureServiceTokenProvider to obtain token for keyvault as mentioned in article --

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/key-vault/service-to-service-authentication#running-the-application-using-managed-identity

    Running the application using a Service Principal

    To sign in using an Azure AD shared secret credential:

    RunAs=App;AppId={AppId};TenantId={TenantId};AppKey={ClientSecret}

    When the {ClientSecret} is generated without any semicolon, this approach works well.

    Request you to please fix the issue.

    Regards
    Sekhar Shrivastava
