cert-manager

Automate certificate management in cloud native environments

cert-manager builds on top of Kubernetes, introducing certificate issuers and certificates as first-class resource types in the Kubernetes API. This makes it possible to provide ‘certificates as a service’ to developers working within your Kubernetes clusters.

Provides easy to use tools for certificate management

cert-manager provides a suite of tools for certificate management in Kubernetes. Request, renew and monitor certificates with easy to use tools. Use the de-facto standard for Kubernetes certificate management and take advantage of integration with other tools.

Standardised API for interacting with multiple Certificate Issuers

You can use multiple Certificate Issuers within a single cluster, to allow configuration flexibility, while maintaining control over configuration.

Gives security teams the confidence to allow developers to self-serve certificates

cert-manager allows for central configuration of Certificate Issuers and policies, while allowing developers to consume them in a self-serve fashion. Take advantage of monitoring to see what certificates are in use across your Kubernetes infrastructure.

Support for many Certificate Issuers

cert-manager comes with support for ACME (Let’s Encrypt), HashiCorp Vault, Venafi, self signed and internal certificate issuers, and others, meaning that you are free to choose your Certificate Authority and use any intermediate issuer you wish.

Extensible to support other Issuers

cert-manager can be extended to support custom, internal or otherwise unsupported Issuers.

There are also many other integration points to have cert-manager work with your infrastructure to request, renew, consume and monitor certificates whilst taking advantage of the automation and deep integration into the cloud native ecosystem provided by cert-manager.

Open Source

cert-manager is open source, so you can get all the benefits of working with a large community contributing improvements.
