Microsoft Azure for Node.js Developers - Building Secure Services and Applications

by Simon Allardice

Microsoft Azure supports Node.js for building and deploying cloud applications. This course explores security-oriented Azure services, including software containers, role-based access control, and more.

What you'll learn

In this course, Microsoft Azure for Node.js Developers - Building Secure Services and Applications, you'll focus on security-oriented Azure features you'd consider in a Node.js application. First, you'll explore software containers with Docker as a way to develop and deploy applications in self-contained, standardized units. You'll then step into automation and resource management, using policies, locks, Role-based Access Control and Azure Resource Manager Templates. You'll then explore storing secrets in an Azure Key Vault, and finish with authentication and authorization using Azure Active Directory. When you're finished with this course, you'll have learned about multiple resources that will help you as you build secure Node applications deployed in Microsoft Azure. This course is adapted from "Microsoft Azure for .NET Developers - Building Secure Services and Applications" by Scott Allen.
