Hardware Key Management in the Azure Cloud

Thales has partnered with Microsoft to support HSMs in the Azure cloud. Whats particularly interesting about this announcement is that they've worked out a key management scheme where users remain in control of the keys. It'll be interesting to dive into the protocols they've implemented to support this and understand the details of the flows.
