For those of us who use Azure as a platform to learn networking (something the UI and portal have proved invaluable for, especially when compared against AWS's reliably complicated interface) the lack of this feature is a big deal. I've been using Azure to build my networking skills for over a year now, and up until I started to tackle setting up P2S VPN connections to Azure, I hadn't considered moving to AWS at all.
I collect old computers and format their drives in such a way as to prevent myself from inadvertently accessing someone else's personal data. I'm early in my career, and frankly I cannot afford windows licenses for all of these client devices. I install various flavors of Linux on these, primarily because they are free.
As of now, it seems like people in my position have two options: deal with the potential for man-in-the-middle attacks as we continue to send my private keys across the internet, or to switch to AWS. I personally don't want to do that for a couple of reasons.Rob T supported this idea ·
