CustomerProvidedEncryptionKey Class

All data in Azure Storage is encrypted at-rest using an account-level encryption key. In versions 2018-06-17 and newer, you can manage the key used to encrypt blob contents and application metadata per-blob by providing an AES-256 encryption key in requests to the storage service.

When you use a customer-provided key, Azure Storage does not manage or persist your key. When writing data to a blob, the provided key is used to encrypt your data before writing it to disk. A SHA-256 hash of the encryption key is written alongside the blob contents, and is used to verify that all subsequent operations against the blob use the same encryption key. This hash cannot be used to retrieve the encryption key or decrypt the contents of the blob. When reading a blob, the provided key is used to decrypt your data after reading it from disk. In both cases, the provided encryption key is securely discarded as soon as the encryption or decryption process completes.
