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 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.
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.
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.
Use IBM Cloud Certificate Manager with IBM Cloud Container Service to deploy custom domain TLS Certificates
We are excited to announce that IBM Cloud Container Service is now integrated with IBM Cloud Certificate Manager! This means that you can easily and securely deploy custom domain TLS certificates from Certificate Manager to your Kubernetes Cluster.
We are excited to announce IBM Cloud Certificate Manager in Beta, a service to help you manage SSL/TLS certificates for your apps and services! Certificate Manager provides you with a secure repository to store your certificates and their associated private keys, and gives you tools to manage the life-cycle of certificates, so that you can continually secure your apps with HTTPS.
