If you are using “DevOps” practices and adopting microservices patterns, very often you hear about Jenkins, Docker, Kubernetes, Terraform, and Ansible. And there is a reason: they are very important for creating code-based infrastructure and deploying microservices-based applications. But, how do you provision certificates when an application is deployed using these tools?
Today, DevOps is not just a buzzword, but a necessity for the IT industry. With an ever-growing need for rapid software releases, organizations are showing an increased interest in DevOps practices and the widespread adoption of microservice architecture patterns.
Agility has become the norm across organizations—and they are demanding maximum visibility, and almost no human intervention in software deployment.
If you are using “DevOps” practices and adopting microservices patterns, very often you hear about Jenkins, Docker, Kubernetes, Terraform, and Ansible tools. And there is a reason: they are very important for creating code-based infrastructure and deploying microservices-based applications.
However, when organizations use these tools to deploy Microservice-based applications, it introduces the problem of securing communications between distributed components in untrusted networks. SSL server and client certificates provide a reliable mechanism to solve this problem. But, how do you provision certificates when an application is deployed using these tools?
Here are a few great options for provisioning private or public SSL certificates:
There are plenty of configuration management and orchestration tools and number of ways to provision certificates using them. Organizations just need to ensure that whatever tools and certificate management solution they choose provide the flexibility to issue both server and client certificates from public and private certificate authorities using standard and API-based integrations.
Sectigo recently announced integrations with five popular DevOps configuration management and container orchestration platforms. This unique combination of solutions immediately helps IT teams ensure their DevOps environments follow accepted security practices, meet compliance and auditability requirements, and provide crypto agility.
