Topic: Never in Plain Text: Protecting Credentials in PowerShell Scripts

Least-privilege security means two things:

  1. You operate your system as a standard user;
  2. Your scripts generally require different credentials

We never want plain text credentials in our scripts. In this session, Tim performs a survey of the most common (and uncommon) methods to protect credentials in PowerShell source code. We will embrace both community modules as well as Azure Key Vault in our discussion.

Arizona PowerShell – February 7th 2017

Topic: PowerShelling Azure
The February meeting will cover the content we weren’t able to see during the December meeting due to the interest and general questions about Azure, Azure Resource Manager (ARM) and Resource Manager Templates.  In February we will walk through some of the basic Azure and ARM PowerShell cmdlets and ways to create/generate ARM Templates.
Azure Resource Manager (ARM) provides a way to organize and manage collections of Azure resources (e.g. VMs, PaaS services, SaaS services).  ARM was made available in 2014 and has become more robust over time and is now the default implementation method for Azure resources.  ARM templates are the Microsoft recommended way to define, configure and deploy in Azure.  ARM templates help support infrastructure as code and have become easier to create and use over the last several months.  Come learn how to quickly and easily create Azure environments in ARM using PowerShell and ARM templates.
