Description [Deprecated: With Cloud Services (classic) retiring (see https://azure.microsoft.com/updates/cloud-services-retirement-announcement), there will no longer be a need for this assessment as management certificates will be obsolete.] Management certificates allow anyone who authenticates with them to manage the subscription(s) they are associated with. To manage subscriptions more securely, use of service principals with Resource Manager is recommended to limit the impact of a certificate compromise.
