How to set security in DevTest Labs

As an owner of your lab, you can secure lab access by via two lab roles: Owner and DevTest Labs User. A person in the Owner role has complete access in the lab whereas a person in the DevTest Labs User role has limited access. In this video, we show you how to add a person in either of these roles to a lab.

Managing Secrets for Azure Apps

Every serious app you deploy on Azure has critical secrets – connection strings, certificates, keys. Silly mistakes in managing these secrets leads to fatal consequences – leaks, outages, compliance violations. As multiple recent surveys point out, silly mistakes cause four times more data breaches than adversaries. In this session, we go over some best practices to manage your important app secrets. These best practices may seem like common sense, yet many developers neglect them. We also go over how to use Azure Key Vault to implement those best practices. As an added benefit, following these practices helps you demonstrate compliance with standards such as SOC. The first 10 minutes of the session are level 100 and they apply to any cloud app you develop on any platform. The remainder is level 200-300 and focuses on apps you build on the Azure platform.
