AWS Certificate Manager Overview

Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) certificates are used to secure network communications and establish the identity of websites over the Internet.

AWS Certificate Manager is a service that lets you easily provision, manage, and deploy SSL/TLS certificates for use with AWS services.

AWS Certificate Manager removes the time-consuming manual process of purchasing, uploading, and renewing SSL/TLS certificates.

With AWS Certificate Manager, you can quickly request a certificate, deploy it on AWS resources such as Elastic Load Balancers, Amazon CloudFront distributions, and APIs on API Gateway, and let AWS Certificate Manager handle certificate renewals.

SSL/TLS certificates provisioned through AWS Certificate Manager are free. You pay only for the AWS resources you create to run your application.

I like to write. I try to document what I learn and share with others. I believe that knowledge is useless unless you share it; the more you share, the more you learn.
