IT – SSL Certificates

So coming from the Windows world, certificates are kind of a pain. You have to generate a certificate request from a trusted authority, then sign the certificate, and manually install it on the server. Plus, if you are using a 3rd party to do it and not your own domain then you will have to repeat this process probably once a year. Oh yeah, those SSL certificates are not free either as there is an associated cost with it.

Well, I figured out how to add in SSL, for free, on my AWS Lightsail instance. Amazon has really good documentation and if you follow the guide at it will show you step by step how to do it.

Super cool stuff. Set and forget with security and for free.
