To prevent the Internet of Things from becoming the largest attack surface in the history of computing, security at scale is paramount. Any company that wants to be taken seriously as an IoT platform player has to provide cloud-scale telemetry ingestion while also delivering security to millions of events per second without skipping a beat. This is no easy task and therefore narrows down the field in this space dramatically. Microsoft Azure IoT services accomplishes this task through the use of Shared Access Signatures (SAS). They provide delegated, limited access to resources such as Event Hubs for a specified period of time with a specified set of permissions. Of course it does this
