Can Azure Key Vault be used by older .NET Frameworks?

Brass Contributor

I have begun experimenting with Azure Key Vault to gain experience at securely saving secrets. I've got a Console app I wrote using .NET 8, to read an Azure Key Vault, which for me was thrilling.


However, I am wondering if using the Azure Key Vault, at least for Microsoft technologies, is restricted to .NET Core maybe going back to .NET Core 3.1 and above? I ask this because where I work, we have a LOT of applications all written using .NET Framework 4.5.2 and older. (Even down to .NET Framework 2.) None of the libraries I used would work with those older .NET Frameworks. Is there a way to make those older .NET Frameworks also work with Azure Key Vault?
