To get started with AWS Certificate Manager (ACM), navigate to the Certificate Manager in the AWS Management Console. You can use AWS Certificate Manager to create public certificates to identify resources on the internet or resources in your organization. ACM can help you create and manage public certificates.

Public certificates

Use the wizard to request an SSL/TLS certificate by choosing Request a public certificate and entering the name of your site. You can also request a certificate using the AWS CLI or API.

After successful validation of your ownership or control of the domain names in your certificate request, the SSL/TLS certificate is issued. You can deploy this certificate for use with Elastic Load Balancers, Amazon CloudFront distributions, or APIs on Amazon API Gateway. You simply select the SSL/TLS certificate you want from a drop-down list in the AWS Management Console. Alternatively, you can execute a CLI command or call an AWS API to associate the certificate with an AWS resource. AWS Certificate Manager then deploys the certificate to the resource you selected.
