Description Deleting a key vault without soft delete enabled permanently deletes all secrets, keys, and certificates stored in the key vault. Accidental deletion of a key vault can lead to permanent data loss. Soft delete allows you to recover an accidentally deleted key vault for a configurable retention period.

Azure_Security_Benchmark_v3.0 DP-8 Azure_Security_Benchmark_v3.0_DP-8 Azure Security Benchmark DP-8 Data Protection Ensure security of key and certificate repository Shared **Security Principle:** Ensure the security of the key vault service used for the cryptographic key and certificate lifecycle management. Harden your key vault service through access control, network security, logging and monitoring and backup to ensure keys and certificates are always protected using the maximum security. **Azure Guidance:** Secure your cryptographic keys and certificates by hardening your Azure Key Vault service through the following controls: - Restrict the access to keys and certificates in Azure Key Vault using built-in access policies or Azure RBAC to ensure the least privileges principle are in place for management plane access and data plane access. - Secure the Azure Key Vault using Private Link and Azure Firewall to ensure the minimal exposure of the service - Ensure separation of duties is place for users who manages encryption keys not have the ability to access encrypted data, and vice versa. - Use managed identity to access keys stored in the Azure Key Vault in your workload applications. - Never have the keys stored in plaintext format outside of the Azure Key Vault. - When purging data, ensure your keys are not deleted before the actual data, backups and archives are purged. - Backup your keys and certificates using the Azure Key Vault. Enable soft delete and purge protection to avoid accidental deletion of keys. - Turn on Azure Key Vault logging to ensure the critical management plane and data plane activities are logged. **Implementation and additional context:** Azure Key Vault overview: https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/key-vault/general/overview Azure Key Vault security best practices: https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/key-vault/general/best-practices Use managed identity to access Azure Key Vault: https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/active-directory/managed-identities-azure-resources/tutorial-windows-vm-access-nonaad n/a link 6

SOC_2 CC6.1 SOC_2_CC6.1 SOC 2 Type 2 CC6.1 Logical and Physical Access Controls Logical access security software, infrastructure, and architectures Shared The customer is responsible for implementing this recommendation. The following points of focus, specifically related to all engagements using the trust services criteria, highlight important characteristics relating to this criterion: • Identifies and Manages the Inventory of Information Assets — The entity identifies, Page 29 TSP Ref. # TRUST SERVICES CRITERIA AND POINTS OF FOCUS inventories, classifies, and manages information assets. • Restricts Logical Access — Logical access to information assets, including hardware, data (at-rest, during processing, or in transmission), software, administrative authorities, mobile devices, output, and offline system components is restricted through the use of access control software and rule sets. • Identifies and Authenticates Users — Persons, infrastructure, and software are identified and authenticated prior to accessing information assets, whether locally or remotely. • Considers Network Segmentation — Network segmentation permits unrelated portions of the entity's information system to be isolated from each other. • Manages Points of Access — Points of access by outside entities and the types of data that flow through the points of access are identified, inventoried, and managed. The types of individuals and systems using each point of access are identified, documented, and managed. • Restricts Access to Information Assets — Combinations of data classification, separate data structures, port restrictions, access protocol restrictions, user identification, and digital certificates are used to establish access-control rules for information assets. • Manages Identification and Authentication — Identification and authentication requirements are established, documented, and managed for individuals and systems accessing entity information, infrastructure, and software. • Manages Credentials for Infrastructure and Software — New internal and external infrastructure and software are registered, authorized, and documented prior to being granted access credentials and implemented on the network or access point. Credentials are removed and access is disabled when access is no longer required or the infrastructure and software are no longer in use. • Uses Encryption to Protect Data — The entity uses encryption to supplement other measures used to protect data at rest, when such protections are deemed appropriate based on assessed risk. • Protects Encryption Keys — Processes are in place to protect encryption keys during generation, storage, use, and destruction 80
