The most common server authentication protocol is Transport Layer Security (TLS), where the client-side (often a browser or client device) verifies the server by verifying the server’s certificate was issued by a trusted certificate authority. Note: Mutual authentication can be used when both the server and the client authenticate one-another. **Azure Guidance:** Many Azure services support TLS authentication by default. For the services supporting TLS enable/disable switch by the user, ensure it's always enabled to support the server/service authentication. Your client application should also be designed to verify server/service identity (by verifying the server’s certificate issued by a trusted certificate authority) in the handshake stage. **Implementation and additional context:** Enforce Transport Layer Security (TLS) for a storage account: n/a link 4
