AWS Certificate Manager

Easily provision, manage, and deploy public SSL/TLS certificates for use with AWS services and your internal connected resources

AWS Certificate Manager is a service that lets you easily provision, manage, and deploy public Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) certificates for use with AWS services and your internal connected resources. SSL/TLS certificates are used to secure network communications and establish the identity of websites over the Internet as well as resources on private networks. 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 ACM-integrated AWS resources, such as Elastic Load Balancers, and APIs on API Gateway, and let AWS Certificate Manager handle certificate renewals. Public certificates provisioned through AWS Certificate Manager for use with ACM-integrated services are free.


Free public certificates for ACM-integrated services

With AWS Certificate Manager, there is no additional charge for provisioning public SSL/TLS certificates you use with ACM-integrated services, such as Elastic Load Balancing and API Gateway. You pay for the AWS resources you create to run your application. 

Managed certificate renewal

AWS Certificate Manager manages the renewal process for the certificates managed in ACM and used with ACM-integrated services, such as Elastic Load Balancing and API Gateway. ACM can automate renewal and deployment of these certificates.

Get certificates easily

AWS Certificate Manager removes many of the time-consuming and error-prone steps to acquire an SSL/TLS certificate for your website or application. There is no need to generate a key pair or certificate signing request (CSR), submit a CSR to a Certificate Authority, or upload and install the certificate once received. With a few clicks in the AWS Management Console, you can request a trusted SSL/TLS certificate from AWS. Once the certificate is created, AWS Certificate Manager takes care of deploying certificates to help you enable SSL/TLS for your website or application.

Use cases

Protect and secure your website

SSL, and its successor TLS, are industry standard protocols for encrypting network communications and establishing the identity of websites over the Internet. SSL/TLS provides encryption for sensitive data in transit and authentication using SSL/TLS certificates to establish the identity of your site and secure connections between browsers and applications and your site. AWS Certificate Manager provides an easy way to provision and manage these certificates so you can configure a website or application to use the SSL/TLS protocol.

Help meet compliance requirements

By making it easy to enable SSL/TLS, AWS Certificate Manager can help your organization meet regulatory and compliance requirements for encryption of data in transit. For specific information about compliance, refer to the AWS China region Compliance site.

Improved uptime

AWS Certificate Manager helps manage the challenges of maintaining SSL/TLS certificates, including certificate renewals so you don’t have to worry about expiring certificates.
