  1. Setting minimum TLS version

    KeyVaults should let users determine the minimum TLS version to use. This is inline with many other azure services (ex. Web Apps, Functions, SQL), increases security and is more future proof (TLS 1.0 and 1.1 is quite old).

  3. Key Vault performance issue breaks Azure Functions

    When retrieving the Azure Functions host key, the service sometimes returns a GatewayTimeout error.

    The Azure Web App support team analyzed the issue and identified a Key Vault performance issue as the root cause.

    "More specific, the related KeyVault API call took longer than expected. As a result of this issue, the related function site failed to be started properly so “ListKey” threw out “Timeout” exception [...]"

    Please vote for implementing "Key Vault Reference Perf Improvements".

  4. Add an extra transparent layer of redundancy for AKV.

    Each AKV is has redundancy as a region pair. ie, West and North Europe. If both these regions are down then any applications using this are down. My case is SQL server TDE.
    Add a way to copy the keys and secret to another/multiple Region pair (already exists) but with a load balancer/failover group above.
    Therefore SQL will reference the failover group, which will route the request to what ever vault is working.

  5. Configure key vault managed storage accounts via ARM template

    This link describes configuring Key Vault managed storage accounts with PowerShell.
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/key-vault/secrets/overview-storage-keys-powershell

    If we could do the same in an ARM template, it would reduce deployment complexity and allow us to leverage the functionality in air-gapped environments.

  6. default

    The default region for hosting a resource should be defaulted from the resource group, currently we have a azure subscription in southeastasia and when creating a new resource the default region is "East-US", this could inadvertently lead to errors. Ideally the resource's region should default from the resource group

  7. Add a createMode: recoverIfDeleted

    The soft delete feature is becoming troublesome for some automation scenarios. I'm managing my environments via Bicep/ARM templates and Key Vaults are a common component within each environment. Some environments are spun up frequently and torn down quickly after and sometimes these are just infrastructure unit tests in my pipelines.

    The issue arises if any key vault has softdelete turned on because any subsequent deployments will fail unless I specify 'recover' createMode but that will cause the first deployment to fail because the key vault had not been deleted.

    This breaks the idempotency of my deployments as I want to…

  8. Subscription based role inheritance control option should be there for Keyvaults

    As of today, all the access roles applicable for Subscription get applied to Resource Group and Key Vault level. What if i don't want at any cost to have my secrets stored in Azure Key Vault to be revealed to anyone else in group

  9. List of secrets can be larger than 9 entries

    In azure portal, the list of secrets is by default capped to 9 entries. If you want to see more, you can press 'Load more'.
    There is room for much more than 9, so it would be good to make it the same as other lists in the azure portal are working

  12. Key Vault replication & backup/restore secret update

    TLDR: I want the possibility to overwrite already existing secrets with the Restore-AzKeyVaultSecret/Key/Certificate to allow for replication in the customers control.

    According to the Key Vault documentation Azure Key Vault provides a 99.9% availability percentage and a replication to the pair region takes place to ensure customers can continue using their Key Vaults after a failover in read-only.

    However this is a situation a customer does not and can not control. This means that a customer has to wait until Microsoft declares a disaster and fails over the vaults to the pair region. I would like it if we would…

  13. Within documentation or in the product overview pages include a list of other Azure services that are dependencies for Key Vault

    When large organizations adopt cloud services they may evaluate the cloud service in depth, along with all other cloud services that must or may be adopted as dependencies of the primary service being planned for use. An example is that when adopting Azure Key Vault a customer will be required to adopt Azure Active Directory if not already adopted, and therefore adopting Key Vault will necessitate an in-depth security assessment of Azure AD in addition to Key Vault.

    Currently Microsoft does not list dependencies of any kind on the product web pages of all the many Azure services. This obliges…

  14. Support for KMIP protocol

    KMIP is a standard protocol for interacting with vaults. It's supported by major vendors including NetApp. Keyvault should support this feature to allow centralized key management.

  15. HMAC signing

    As an application developer, I have had a number of situations where HMAC signing has been a key part of application security, such as:


    • Signing “local” session tokens (JWT, cookies, etc)

    • Third-party integrations (API authentication)

    • Integrity of data at rest

    In many of these scenarios, ECC signing is either too heavy or not possible due to third-party dependencies. For scenarios where the same Key Vault can do the signing and verification, it would be ideal for us to be able to either generate or import a symmetric key in Key Vault for use with HMAC.

    This would allow us to…

  16. Multi-Region Key Vault

    Currently, Key Vault only supports one single region via collocation constraint, but there are usecases which having a multi-region Key Vault is necessary such as Encryption Scope.

    What I am suggesting is to implement a version of Key Vault which supports multiple regions instead of just one

  17. Remove option to toggle IP config from dynamic to static

    As per documentation: "When creating a private endpoint, a read-only network interface is also created for the lifecycle of the resource. The interface is assigned dynamically private IP addresses from the subnet that maps to the private link resource. The value of the private IP address remains unchanged for the entire lifecycle of the private endpoint."
    However now the system lets you go into the NIC, go into the IP cofig and toggle the IP settings from dynamic to static. This is not allowed by the system and results in an error when saving. Please remove this option from here…

  19. On Prem AKV

    Even with premium, AKV is placed in the Microsoft Datacenters. That is the main reason customers don't want to have both data and keys on the same cloud or with the provider, which is Microsoft.
    This is a much bigger problem in the EU.

    Why can't Microsoft create AKV as a device which customers can buy and put in their own data center? Add it as a registered device in Azure subscription, and then it provides the same interface and API.

  20. Offer Logic App as a choice in the Event Endpoint dropdown
