Access Azure Key Vault from your Kubernetes Pods

In any application it is likely you are going to need access to some “secret” data, connection strings, API keys, passwords etc. It is essential that the applications that need them can access these secrets, but that they are also kept secure. One way of doing this is using Azure Keyvault; this is a secure store which can hold secrets, keys and certificates and allow applications to access them securely. Generally, Keyvault Secrets are accessed by the application making a call to the KeyVault API and providing the appropriate credentials (username/password, certificate or managed service identity).
