1. AI Model Endpoint Security with Azure API Management


    To secure an AI model endpoint with Azure API Management (APIM), we need to configure various components within the APIM service, including creating an API to act as a proxy between your clients and the AI model endpoint, and setting up policies to handle access control, rate limits, and other security considerations.

    Below is a Pulumi program written in Python that sets up a basic APIM service, configures an API gateway with a backend pointing to a hypothetical AI model endpoint, and secures it using a policy. The policy can include validation of JWT tokens if the endpoint requires authentication.

    Note that in order to implement the actual policy specifics, such as rate limiting, you would need to add the appropriate XML policy definitions, which is beyond the scope of this example. Additionally, you need to replace YOUR_AI_MODEL_ENDPOINT with the actual URL of your AI model, and adjust authentication settings as necessary.

    import pulumi import pulumi_azure_native as azure_native # Create an Azure Resource Group resource_group = azure_native.resources.ResourceGroup("resource_group") # Create an APIM service instance apim_service = azure_native.apimanagement.Service( "apimService", resource_name="my-apim-service", resource_group_name=resource_group.name, publisher_name="MyCompany", publisher_email="contact@mycompany.com", sku=azure_native.apimanagement.SkuDescriptionArgs( name="Developer", # The "Developer" tier is for testing purposes. For production, use "Basic" or above. capacity=1, ), # Other properties such as 'location' can be set here as needed. ) # Define the AI model endpoint as a backend in APIM ai_model_backend = azure_native.apimanagement.Backend( "aiModelBackend", resource_group_name=resource_group.name, service_name=apim_service.name, backend_id="ai-model-backend", url="YOUR_AI_MODEL_ENDPOINT", # Replace with the actual endpoint URL. protocol="http", # Change to "https" if the endpoint supports it. # Specify other backend properties such as 'credentials' or 'proxy' if necessary. ) # Define an API that uses the previously defined AI model backend ai_api = azure_native.apimanagement.Api( "aiApi", resource_group_name=resource_group.name, service_name=apim_service.name, api_id="ai-model-api", display_name="AI Model API", description="API interface for AI Model endpoint.", path="ai-model", # This is the sub-path under which the API will be accessible. protocols=["https"], # API should be exposed over HTTPS. service_url="YOUR_AI_MODEL_ENDPOINT", # Define the AI model's URL here as well. ) # Apply a policy to the API for security measures such as authentication policy = azure_native.apimanagement.Policy( "aiModelApiPolicy", resource_group_name=resource_group.name, service_name=apim_service.name, policy_id="policy", value="""<policies> <inbound> <base /> <!-- Add security policies here, e.g., validate JWT tokens, rate limiting --> </inbound> <backend> <base /> </backend> <outbound> <base /> </outbound> <on-error> <base /> </on-error> </policies>""", format="xml", # Policies are defined with XML. ) # Output the API Gateway URL pulumi.export("api_management_gateway_url", pulumi.Output.concat("https://", apim_service.name, ".azure-api.net/")) # Make sure to run `pulumi up` to deploy these resources to Azure.

    This Pulumi program demonstrates how to secure an AI Model Endpoint with Azure API Management. It creates a new API Management service and defines an API that serves as a proxy to the AI model endpoint. The backend configuration points to the AI model endpoint where your model is hosted.

    A policy is then applied to the API, which is a crucial step for securing the endpoint. While the specific policies (like rate limits and token validation) are not detailed in this example, you can specify them in the XML string passed to the value property of the Policy resource. Policies in APIM are written in a domain-specific XML-based language provided by Azure.

    When you run this Pulumi program, it will deploy the necessary Azure resources to set up the API Management instance. The pulumi.export statement at the end will provide you with the URL of the API Management Gateway after deployment, so you can access your secured AI model.
