How can .net wpf clients upload blobs to Azure storage w/o giving them the Azure auth credential? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello - we have wpf clients that upload images/videos to a central server.  We'd like to use Azure storage but we're concerned about the security risk of having each wpf client have a local copy of the Azure storage auth key.  We'd prefer to have each client have it's own key/credential so if we lose track of one (lost laptop etc.) we don't have a major security issue on our hands and have to replace all the clients.

    How is this problem best addressed in the Azure world?

  • Look up "shared access signatures" (and particularly, for long-lived signatures that can be revoked, you'll want to investigate "containel-level access policies").
