With the arrival of HTTPS Everywhere, all browsers now mark non-HTTPS traffic as insecure. However, management of Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) certificates that enable HTTPS can be quite complicated.
Introducing Certificate Manager Service Early Access
Certificate Manager Service simplifies public Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) certificate management while letting you deploy those certificates wherever you like.
Certificate Manager Service lets you request a publicly trusted certificate and have that certificate delivered to your storage solution so that your systems can distribute and use it as required. Your certificate is not locked into use with only Capability Services.
What kind of certificates does Certificate Manager Service offer?
The certificates you'll receive will be standard X.509 SSL/TLS certificates signed by the Let's Encrypt Certificate Authority valid for 90 days trusted by all major web browsers, operating systems and devices, and all major root programs including Microsoft, Google, Apple, Mozilla, Oracle, and Blackberry.
Using Certificate Manager Service
Certificate Manager Service automates certificate issuance. All you are responsible for is domain name validation and receiving issued certificates.
To learn more, see the Certificate Manager Service documentation.
Pricing and Availability
During Early Access, Certificate Manager Service is free to use. Once Early Access ends, you will pay only for what you use.
