Many organizations run their own Certificate Authorities for internal domains. When application teams run internal services on the cloud, they need to be able to request and manage SSL certificates.
Best Practices for Offering Managed SSL Certificates
Leverage Existing Internal Services
Most organizations already have internal processes for managing certificates, e.g. via an ITSM ticketing system. While a direct and fully automated integration with these systems provides the highest degree of automation, application teams will already greatly benefit from managing their infrastructure services from the Foundation Service Platform even if the actual service implementation just sends a service request by email.
Integrate with Key Vault, DNS
Certificates always have sensitive private key materials, consider integrating this service with Managed Key Vault block. Also, integration with a Managed DNS Services may be desirable to shortcut domain validation etc.
Currently no tool implementations documented. Contributions welcome!
