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.
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.

Course Overview Welcome. I'm Simon Allardice and in this course, we're diving into Microsoft Azure's security oriented features to consider when deploying a node. js application. We'll begin with software containers as a way to develop and deploy in self-contained, standardized units. We'll explore policies and role-based access, then cover automation and provisioning entire environments using Azure resource manager templates. We'll cover options for authentication and authorization for our applications and our APIs, using Azure Active Directory together with passport authentication middleware for Node. And use Azure Key Vault as a way to securely encrypt and store secrets, keys, and certificates. By the end of the course, you'll have an understanding of multiple techniques and approaches you can use to build your own secure systems. Let's get started.
