Renew Azure SQL Server Admin Credentials Routinely
This project consists of an Azure Function written in C# to help secure sensitive data and systems in organizations by rotating credentials regularly. The function discovers all the Azure SQL Servers it has access to, changes the Admin credentials, and stores them securely in Key Vault. The Azure Function also reports the status to Slack.
Credential rotation is a critical security practice for organizations to keep their data and systems secure from malicious attacks. By regularly changing the passwords used to access privileged accounts, organizations can reduce the risk of unauthorized access and ensure that any dormant accounts are not left open with outdated passwords. Leveraging an Azure Function written in C# to automate the credential rotation process simplifies the task and ensures that all passwords meet the organization’s security requirements. Regular credential renewal is a key component of any organization’s cybersecurity strategy.
