Azure KeyVault: Add-AzureKeyVaultKey -destination 'Software' Vs Add-AzureKeyVaultCertificate ?

Iron Contributor

Hi everyone, I hope this is the right place to post about Azure Key Vault.


I am trying to figure out the difference between creating keys in the vault as there are two commands to create software keys:

Add-AzureKeyVaultKey -destination 'Software' Vs Add-AzureKeyVaultCertificate ?


I tried [Add-AzureKeyVaultKey ], and when trying to see the properties of the created key, it is like this [attached].


So how I am going to use such key, and it shows it is RSA, so it is asymmetric.. where can I find its public key, and how can I use such key from outside?


On the other hand, the Add-AzureKeyVaultCertificate will clearly create a digital certificate where I can access its public key and attributes.
