Join Michael Lehman for an in-depth discussion in this video Using shared access signatures, part of Building Windows Phone 8 Apps with Azure.
…A feature of Windows Azure is something called shared access signatures.…This is a way of giving apps temporary access…without giving away the farm in terms of your credintials.…Your main azure keys are not to be shared, and they don't expire.…We're using them in this course, but for a real app, you'll actually…want to have some kind of server service that get's the shared access signature.…And gives a temporary access to the data to your app,…rather than giving your full Windows Azure keys to each individual app.…
Shared access signatures grant specific permissions.…They're time limited.…You can say to your app, you have access to this blob…container or you have access to this table for the next five minutes.…A shared access signature can also say you have read access but not write access.…If you're using a shared access signature,…you need to make sure that you put in additional data validation, because…that may be coming from apps other than the ones that you write.…An finally, since you have specified it a time limit.…
