Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced on Wednesday the launch of several tools and services designed to help customers manage their firewalls, use private certificates, and safely store credentials.
Private Certificate Authority
One of the new services is called Private Certificate Authority (CA) and it’s part of the AWS Certificate Manager (ACM). The Private CA allows AWS customers to use private certificates without the need for specialized infrastructure.
Developers can now provision private certificates with just a few API calls. At the same time, administrators are provided central management and auditing capabilities, including certificate revocation lists (CRLs) and certificate creation reports. Private CA is based on a pay-as-you-go pricing model.
