Use AAD authentication with Service Fabric clusters#

Security · Service Fabric · Azure.ServiceFabric.AAD

Use Azure Active Directory (AAD) client authentication for Service Fabric clusters.

Description#

When deploying Service Fabric clusters on Azure, AAD can optionally be used to secure management endpoints. If configured, client authentication (client-to-node security) uses AAD. Additionally Azure Role-based Access Control (RBAC) can be used to delegate cluster access.

For Service Fabric clusters running on Azure, AAD is recommended to secure access to management endpoints.

Recommendation#

Consider enabling Azure Active Directory (AAD) client authentication for Service Fabric clusters.

Notes#

For Linux clusters, AAD authentication must be configured at cluster creation time. Windows cluster can be updated to support AAD authentication after initial deployment.
