  1. 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.

  2. Improve error messaging for Key Vault firewall vNet integration

    If you try to add a vNet/subnet to a Key Vault's firewall, the subscription where that vNet lives must have the Key Vault resource provider registered. If the Key Vault resource provider is not registered in the vNet's subscription, the error you see leads you down a different rabbit hole. Here's an example of the error message:

    Virtual Network could not be validated. code: AuthorizationFailed. message: "The client '{guid}' with object id '{same_guid}' does not have authorization to perform action 'microsoft.network/virtualnetworks/taggedTrafficConsumers/validate/action' over scope '/subscriptions/my-vNet-subscription-guid/resourcegroups/my-Resource-Group/providers/microsoft.network/virtualnetworks/my-vNet/taggedTrafficConsumers/Microsoft.KeyVault.centralus' or the scope is invalid. If access was recently granted, please refresh your credentials.".

    That error…

  3. Additional Event Types for Key Vault integration with Event Grid

    How about some additional event types, specifically Microsoft.KeyVault.SecretDeleted, Microsoft.KeyVault.CertificateDeleted, and Microsoft.KeyVault.KeyDeleted ?

    I'd like be able to subscribe to delete events. The *NewVersionCreated event types fire when adding a new key vault object or a new version is saved but I need to know when an object is deleted.

  4. Allow key vault references without version

    It was previously possible to reference key vault settings without specifying the secret version in the URL. i.e. https://myvault.vault.azure.net/secrets/mysecret/

    And would automatically reference the most current version of the secret.

    This functionality stopped working after a rollout on 9 August 2019.

    This is a very useful feature when you need to use secrets across different environments as it is cumbersome to update the references whenever a secret needs to be updated.

  5. keyvault version control and management

    enable versioning and tagging of entire keyvault properties to enable quick switching between configurations

    AND/OR enable online backup of keyvault to achieve the same effect

    Additionally, the keyvault user interface is very hard and inefficient to make a lot of changes and is error prone, so an improved table based UI might help ?

  6. Allow ALL PaaS services to be trusted by KeyVault. Without this, firewall rules are unmanageable

    Allow all PaaS services to be trusted by KeyVault. Without this, firewall rules are unmanageable. Data factory has dynamic IPs, MIcrosoft solution to me was to add the 220 IP ranges for West US 2. Sadly, KeyVault only allows 127 entries. - Solution? Use the self hosted runtimes (higher cost). My solution if you want Key Vault to be enterprise ready, in the firewall screen, make it as simple as explicitly selecting an Azure service and saying - allow access - why do I have to figure out IP ranges? (too many anyway).Lets help the Azure Key Vault product team…

  7. Support for nCipher HSM and CNG

    Currently, Azure Key vault HSM doesn't support nCipher HSM and CNG ("nCipher World Key Provider"). Due to this we are not able to migrate few of our services to Azure and it become bottleneck for migration.

  8. Key Vault Access Policies - Provide Identifier next to SP.

    In some scenarios there can be 2 service principals created in Azure AD such as function apps which have been re created and have the same name, by providing the Id next to the name it will allow contributors to verify they have selected the correct service principal to grant access to, and not old SP's

  9. improve client exceptions around auth failures due to traffic routing failures

    I just spent a couple days trying to figure out why we couldn't use a service principal to auth against KeyVault from our on prem servers.

    It turned out we had failed to setup SNAT rules for a bank of machines, but none of the exceptions emitted by the client libraries were at all helpful in figuring this out.

    I've attached sample exceptions we got from the 2 different versions of the nuget packages we tried, but it was basically these 2 messages:

    Exception Message: Access token could not be acquired. Object reference not set to an instance of an…

  10. Fix the article on Key Vault backups

    This article https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/kv/2018/07/20/announcing-backup-and-restore-of-keys-secrets-and-certificates/ has some pretty major errors, such as stating that the CLI command line to backup a secret is the same as the one to backup a key. Someone needs to review and correct this article.

  11. nCipher Security has only one product, general purpose HSM

    LOL, this happen if somebody is not doing his work properly and only rename vendor.
    nCipher Security has only general purpose HSM and has no activities in NATO or with payment solution. The text is about Thales company.

    nCipher Security is a leading global provider of data encryption and cyber security solutions to the financial services, high technology, manufacturing, government, and technology sectors. With a 40-year track record of protecting corporate and government information, nCipher Security cryptographic solutions are used by four of the five largest energy and aerospace companies.

  12. Simplify key rotation process

    Make it easier to rotate keys. Currently, when creating a new version it becomes the default version immediately - which makes the process very risky. It will be better to be able to do this process manually (marking a key as default) - so I can do it when I'm ready. Or, even better - support decrtpting using the old keys like AWS KMS or GCP KMS are doing.

    References:
    https://docs.aws.amazon.com/kms/latest/developerguide/rotate-keys.html

  13. 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.

  14. 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)

  15. 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.

  17. 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? ;-)

  18. 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

    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…

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
