Securing your Azure Web App with ASP.NET Core data protection


One of the new features of ASP.NET Core is the data protection stack, an easy to use cryptographic API developers can use to protect their data. This session will showcase this new API, going over all of the features including key management and rotation. We will build a simple ASP.NET Core web application and deploy it to an Azure instance. The final part of this session will demonstrate how to integrate a free SSL certificate from Let’s Encrypt into Azure to fully secure your Azure Web App.
