Microsoft Codename "Trust Services" is an application-level encryption framework that can be used by developers to protect sensitive data stored inside their cloud applications on the Windows Azure Platform. Data encrypted with Trust Services can only be decrypted by authorized data consumers. This empowers data publishers to freely distribute and share data by first encrypting the data using Trust Services. Consumers of sensitive data encrypted with Trust Services can have full confidence that the data cannot be viewed by anyone who is not authorized.

Updated features released include:

  • Search on encrypted data
  • Encryption of streams
  • Role separation for administration, publishing and consumption of data protection
