Using Default Credentrials or pass through authentication in office 365 / Dynamics 365 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    We're dealing with a hybrid on prem-online setup here where applications need to authenticate and integrate with other applications on Azure, Office 365 and on premise. We have ADFS set up but users will need to log onto Office 365 services using their email address and log onto their on prem machines and services using their AD domain and user accounts.

    When programmatically integrating, we're currently storing service account names and passwords for each application and authenticating as necessary. But there is a potential security issue in storing this information everywhere.

    Is there a way to programmatically authenticate between all the different environment using the executing user's (service account running the service) default credentials so that we don't have to programmatically encrypt/decrypt, retrieve and pass passwords around the network?

    failing that, is there a secure password vault tool you can recommend to store this kind of info and avoid everyone seeing passwords or having access to encryption keys?
