How To Create SSL Certificate For Website?


Background Information

Before you can encrypt your web traffic with SSL (Secure Socket Layer), you’ll need an SSL certificate, which you’ll correlate with your ServerTemplate. Third-party certificate authorities typically issue SSL certificates for production servers (CAS).

A CSR (certificate signing request) including encrypted corporate and website information is required before a certificate authority will issue an SSL certificate.

  1. Create a private key file and a certificate signing request (CSR) for your web server.
  2. Give the contents of your CSR to the certificate authority.
  3. Connect your RightScale ServerTemplate to the SSL server certificate you acquired from the CA. (For further information, see How do I set up SSL?.)
