AWS Private Certificate Authority


Version: 1.0
Updated: Mar 8, 2024

AWS Private CA enables creation of private certificate authority (CA) hierarchies, including root and subordinate CAs, without the investment and maintenance costs of operating an on-premises CA. Your private CAs can issue end-entity X.509 certificates useful in scenarios including:

  • Creating encrypted TLS communication channels
  • Authenticating users, computers, API endpoints, and IoT devices
  • Cryptographically signing code
  • Implementing Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) for obtaining certificate revocation status


  • List Certificate Authorities (Enrichment) - Lists the private certificate authorities that you created.
  • Issue Certificate (Containment) - Uses your private certificate authority (CA), or one that has been shared with you, to issue a client certificate.
  • Get Certificate (Enrichment) - Retrieves a certificate from your private CA or one that has been shared with you.
