Consuming Azure Key Vault secrets

You can easily create a Key Vault secret provider - The only thing you need to do is specify how you want to configure and to what vault.

var vaultAuthentication = new ManagedServiceIdentityAuthentication();var vaultConfiguration = new KeyVaultConfiguration(keyVaultUri);var keyVaultSecretProvider = new KeyVaultSecretProvider(vaultAuthentication, vaultConfiguration)

You can find a list of supported authentication schemes for Azure Key Vault here.

Open for extension#

You can easily extend the Key Vault provider by overriding the GetSecret*Async methods on the it.

This useful to provide additional logging, for example, during the retrieval of the secrets.

using Arcus.Security.Providers.AzureKeyVault;
public class LoggedKeyVaultSecretProvider : KeyVaultSecretProvider{    private readonly ILogger _logger;
    public LoggedKeyVaultSecretProvider(ILogger<LoggedKeyVaultSecretProvider> logger)    {        _logger = logger;    }
    public override async Task<Secret> GetSecretAsync(string secretName)    {        using (var measurement = DependencyMeasurement.Start())        {            Secret secret = await base.GetSecretAsync(secretName);            _logger.LogDependency("Azure Key Vault", "Secret", isSuccessful: true, startTime: measurement.StartTime, duration: measurement.Elapsed);        }
        return secret;    }}
