Secure your Web environments with automatic generation of SSL certificates
By Subutai Community Manager Felipe Fonseca
With more than 89 million active certificates servicing 149 million websites, Let’s Encrypt is the leading certificate authority on the Web. The Subutai Bazaar now features Let’s Encrypt integration, which gives users the ability to automatically generate and apply SSL certificates to their containers running HTTP services. This means you can have your environments serving applications securely, and that’s a plus when we talk about building trust with your users or your audience.
“We’re glad to see that Subutai is encrypting traffic by default.”
—Josh Aas, Executive Director of Let’s Encrypt
Simply go to your Environment’s Container Port Mapping tab and click “Add New Port”. Then choose HTTP from the dropdown list, define the ports (typically you will use port 80 internally, and 443 externally). Pick your domain name or subdomain (as announced in an earlier post, you can even use your own domains), then choose “Let’s Encrypt provided SSL”. Make sure you select the right container, and there you go. The Subutai Bazaar will take care of generating the certificate and adding it to the proper DNS entry. You only need to worry about configuring your application properly.
To make things even easier, the Blueprints for Bazaar Products can also add Let’s Encrypt certificates automatically. If you are a Blueprint author, contact us on slack to know more about this feature.
We’re proud that Subutai helps securely connect the Web of Trust. Try it on your Web environments and let us know how it works for you. We look forward to your feedback.
