Create a new cert, base64 encode it and put it in KeyVault
#Requires -Module AzureRM.KeyVault
# Use this script to create a certificate that you can use to secure a Service Fabric Cluster or other VM/SSL scenario
# This script requires an existing KeyVault that is EnabledFor[Template]Deployment (property depends on the scenario)
# To create a new vault and set the EnabledForDeployment/EnabledForTemplateDeployment property run:
# New-AzureRmResourceGroup -Name KeyVaults -Location WestUS
# New-AzureRmKeyVault -VaultName $KeyVaultName -ResourceGroupName KeyVaults -Location WestUS -EnabledForDeployment -EnabledForTempalteDeployment
# Once the certificate is created and stored in the vault, the script will provide the parameter values needed for template deployment
