Authenticate to Azure App Service from Model-driven app

Hi, we have a model-driven Power App and an accompanying Azure backend (Azure Functions and a REST API). The Azure services are called from Dataverse (CDS) plugins. 

What is the recommended way to authenticate calls from CDS plugins to Azure services? Preferably with Azure Active Directory.


I'm aware it is possible to secure access to Azure services with AAD-based authentication, and use a Connector to wrap the connection for a Canvas app as explained in this tutorial. However, connectors seem to be only available for Canvas apps, not Model-driven apps. How do I authenticate from a plugin?
