The list has been rather quiet of late so I thought I'd share something. I run PS scripts to query Azure, amongst other things. I am always careful about how I handle credentials so I prefer not to store a username/password or clientid/clientsecret in the clear. One option is the DPAPI. However, with Azure AD there is now a simpler option. The Connect-AzureAD commandlet has the ability to use an Azure application for auth and moreover supports using a certificate to store the secret. I wrote a blog post detailing how this works. Check it out:

Thanks,

I'm not sure that I've ever heard "simpler" to describe "certificate based" anything in an enterprise environment 😊
