Winner: Microsoft Graph Security Hackathon

Recently I entered my second Hackathon. My submission was my first ever Web Application for the Devpost / Microsoft Graph Security Hackathon. This morning (Australian time) the winners were announced and ……. I WON.

To say I’m thrilled and honoured would be an understatement as the hackathon was judged by the esteemed Ann Johnson, Scott Hanselman, Troy Hunt, Rick Howard, Mark Russinovich and Olli Vanhoja. Big thanks also have to go to Preeti Krishna from Microsoft who was super responsive on queries around the Microsoft Security Graph.

My entry; Microsoft USER (User Security Evaluation Reporter) is an application that reports on any user within an Active Directory/Azure Active Directory and their associated security posture with respect to Risk Events, Enrolled MFA Methods, Password Pwned Status and Azure Password Reset Events. The UI provides a quick summary overview as shown immediately below with the ability to then drill down into each evaluation area.

Additional details about my submission can be found here including the architecture and technical details but here is a walk through demo of it.

 

A Voice Assistant for Microsoft Identity Manager

This is the third and final post in my series around using your voice to query/search Microsoft Identity Manager or as I’m now calling it, the Voice Assistant for Microsoft Identity Manager.

The two previous posts in this series detail some of my steps and processes in developing and fleshing out this Voice Assistant for Microsoft Identity Manager concept. The first post detailed the majority of the base functionality whilst the second post detailed the auditing and reporting aspects into Table Storage and Power BI.

My final architecture is depicted below.
