Explain how authentication and security works in Azure Event Grid.
- [Instructor] Let's talk about security and authentication.…This is something that is baked into the event grid…so let's understand how event grid handles these.…When we think of security, we think…of authentication and authorization, right?…This is something you must of heard over and over again.…Authentication, who are you?…Authorization, what can you do?…So in the case of event grid, when we talk of authentication…there are three different unique…concepts we need to learn about.…
Webhooks, event subscriptions, and custom topics.…So all of these handle authentication slightly differently.…So, let's walk through these in a little bit.…Authorization, on the other hand, well these are some unique…permissions that the event grid supports.…In using these, you can define permission levels…and assign them to users so basically…you get role based access control with the event grid.…Let's start with authentication first.…

Azure Event Grid is a fully managed, intelligent event-routing service that allows for uniform and efficient event consumption using a publish-subscribe model. An alternative to expensive polling, Event Grid allows your services to talk to each other more efficiently and securely. This course demonstrates how to react to relevant events across Azure in near real-time fashion. Get an overview of Event Grid, and learn how it compares to other routing services: Service Bus, Event Hubs, and Queue Storage. Review the security features, and see how Event Grid handles message delivery when it doesn't get a response from an endpoint. Instructor Sahil Malik then demonstrates a practical use case for the technology, using Event Grid to react to Azure Blog Storage events.
