Key Vault is an Azure module, which lets you safely store your secrets/keys. This way your developers do not have to store credentials or connection strings in the code, but can simpy ask Key Vault to provide them. The application will be handed the password and will be able to log in without the developer even knowing it. Let us create a key vault!
