I have done some searching and I can’t find a definitive answer.
Can .NET MF handle the necessary SSL/TLS communications to talk to the Azure Service bus natively? Referencing the “Internet of Things” article here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/jj190807.aspx it appears that version 4.2 should be able to handle it.
Has anyone successfully done it? I see most people using the cloud with MF devices set up a web role to receive the unencrypted data. Because of the security requirements for the project I would much rather go directly to the Service Bus using SSL.
