Welcome to this hands-on lab for AWS Certificate Manager (or ACM).

ACM handles the complexity of creating and managing SSL certificates for your web applications. You can also use public certificates provided by ACM for free.

You can create a listener on your load balancer that uses encrypted connections (also known as SSL offload). This feature enables traffic encryption between your load balancer and the clients that initiate SSL sessions.

To use an HTTPS listener, you must deploy a certificate on your load balancer. The load balancer uses this certificate to terminate the connection and then decrypt requests from clients before sending them to the targets.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
