Navigating SSL/TLS Certificates with AWS Certificate Manager

Navigating SSL/TLS Certificates with AWS Certificate Manager

In the digital ecosystem, the security of data in transit is paramount. SSL/TLS certificates play a crucial role in establishing a secure channel between a client and a server, ensuring that sensitive information remains encrypted and out of reach from prying eyes. AWS Certificate Manager (ACM) simplifies the task of managing these certificates, offering a seamless experience for securing web applications and services. Anagram Consulting is here to guide you through navigating SSL/TLS certificates with AWS Certificate Manager.


Understanding SSL/TLS Certificates

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) and TLS (Transport Layer Security) certificates are digital certificates that authenticate the identity of a website and enable an encrypted connection. These certificates are a staple in the security protocol for the internet, ensuring that data transmitted between web servers and browsers remains private and integral.
