Using certificates with HTTP servers (web, REST API,…) is mandatory today. In this session, we’ll review certificate basics (how they work, various types, etc.).
Traditionally, installing certificates often required using some OpenSSL commands. This was before Let’s Encrypt®.
Let’s Encrypt® is an organization created to provide free certificates, as well as a standard to install and renew them automatically.
During this session, you’ll learn about and receive a copy of a component created specifically to use the Automated Certificate Management Environment (ACME) protocol required by Let’s Encrypt®. With this component, getting, installing, and renewing your certificates will be fully automated.
If you’ve found managing certificates to be tedious and costly, this session is for you.
