Can I use Azure Key Vault for my application

0 votes
I am an Azure Application Developer. I need to develop an Azure application that uses keys for signing and encryption where keys are external. And it should be such that it could be accessed across locations. Can I use Key Vault for this purpose? Will it solve my requirement?

In my opinion, using key vault will perfectly fit your requirements.  On using it,

  • Keys are stored in a vault and invoked by URI when needed.

  • Keys are safeguarded by Azure, using industry-standard algorithms, key lengths, and hardware security modules.

  • Keys are processed in HSMs that reside in the same Azure datacenters as the applications. This method provides better reliability and reduced latency than keys that reside in a separate location, such as on-premises.
