Get Your SSL Certificates Here – 2016

NOTE: Amazon AWS customers can try out their SSL Certificate Manager service but it works best if your machines are fully automated with devops tools (Chef, Puppet, SaltStack, Ansible, etc). AWS does not offer insurance, badging, or wildcard certs.

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

AWS Certificate Manager (ACM) handles the complexity of provisioning, deploying, and managing certificates provided by ACM (ACM Certificates) for your AWS-based websites and applications. You use ACM to request and manage the certificate and then use other AWS services to provision the ACM Certificate for your website or application. As shown by the following illustration, ACM Certificates are currently available for use with only Elastic Load Balancing and Amazon CloudFront. You cannot use ACM Certificates outside of AWS.

I will email you an invoice from paypal along with your new certificate.

Here’s what you’ll get:

CSR Instructions

NOTE: The following characters can not be accepted: < > ~ ! @ # $ % ^ * / \ ( ) ?.,&

Type the following command to generate a private key that is file encrypted. You will be prompted for the password to access the file and also when starting your web server. Warning: If you lose or forget the pass phrase, you must purchase another certificate.

openssl genrsa -des3 -out domainname.key 2048

You could also create a private key without file encryption if you do not want to enter the pass phrase when starting your web server:

openssl genrsa -out domainname.key 2048

Type the following command to create a CSR with the RSA private key (output will be PEM format):

openssl req -new -key domainname.key -out domainname.csr

NOTE: You will be prompted for your PEM pass phrase if you included the “-des3″ switch.  This is optional. Don’t include the -des3 if you want your webserver to be able to restart without human intervention.
