  • Azure Maps has two methods of authenication;

    • Basic key authenication which most mapping platforms use, but provides little security and is better suited for development or server to server calls in trusted environments.
    • Azure Active Directory authentication which provides much better security. 

    For public facing applications we recommend using Azure active Directory authentication in anonymous mode.
