You’re deploying a project with a Kubernetes service that can be accessed using port-forward or an external IP, by using the load balancer service type. But when it’s time to deploy the project into production, the documentation doesn’t explain how to set up TLS. Now what?
Cert-manager to the rescue! Cert-manager makes it easy to generate a TLS certificate, which can be used to enable HTTPS (secure HTTP) access to an application. During this presentation and live demo, Onkar will show attendees how to:
Deploy a certificate issuer using “Let's Encrypt” and a DNS-01 resolver
Provision a TLS certificate using cert-manager and the certificate issuer
Create DNS records to map a domain name to the application's external IP addresses
Deploy an application with the TLS certificate and demo how to access the application using HTTPS on a browser
The audience will walk away with a concrete set of steps for deploying their application with TLS, so it can be accessed using HTTPS.
