Security of an application's data is priority, whether that data is local or in a cloud service such as Microsoft Azure. In this course, you are going to learn everything you need to know about Shared Access Signatures, Azure's out-of-the-box security access control that allows you the ability to specify the who, what, when, and how your data can be accessed. Not only do they afford granular access control over your data, but they provide a uniform way of granting access to data across a wide range of Azure services, dispensing with the need to learn different access controls for every service. Microsoft has provided a way for developers to utilize Shared Access Signatures within their application through Azure's various service's SDKs. Using real-world applications, we'll walk through implementing Shared Access Signatures for a wide range of Azure services ranging from storage services to message bus based services.
