IBM Cloud Certificate Manager now lets you obtain TLS certificates signed by Let’s Encrypt. Let’s Encrypt is an automated, ACME-protocol-based CA that issues free certificates valid for 90 days.
In this article, we'll explore load balancing traffic across two geographically-separated backends built on IBM Cloud Functions. We'll use the IBM Cloud API Gateway to deploy the same API definition in both regions, and then intelligently route traffic with IBM Cloud Internet Services.
In this post, we'll share how you can make sure you have end-to-end protection for data in transit without running into any TLS certificate expiry issues.
Secure your cloud app end to end. Use a custom domain with TLS certificate for apps deployed on IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service.
Certificate Manager keeps track of when your certificates expire, serves as a secure repository for TLS certificates and keys, and helps you securely deploy certificates to your cloud apps. We realize that many times, people get the alerts and notifications but fail to take necessary action, resulting in a service outage. In this article, we will discuss how to implement the callback URL to generate PagerDuty alerts for expiring certificates.
Today, we're announcing the global availability of the custom domains feature for IBM Cloud's lightweight API management service. In the process of rolling this out worldwide, we've taken usage data and customer feedback into account to make the feature even better.
If you were using Certificate Manager in Beta, we have good news—you can continue to use your existing instances as is. There is no required migration, and you can continue to use Certificate Manager for free. For new users, you can go ahead and create a new instance and use for free also.
Midnight Page Duty incidents are no fun. Now, IBM Cloud Certificate Manager can notify you in advance when your certificates are about to expire, helping you avoid downtime in your app.
Even the most successful or genius apps can fail if there are issues with availability. While development teams often engineer for availability, with lots of redundancy, health checks, and load balancing, sometimes outages occur because of simple human errors. One common error is that teams fail to renew SSL/TLS certificates on time.
