cert-manager

cert-manager is a Kubernetes add-on to automate the management and issuance of TLS certificates from various issuing sources.

It will ensure certificates are valid and up to date periodically, and attempt to renew certificates at an appropriate time before expiry.

It is loosely based upon the work of kube-lego and has borrowed some wisdom from other similar projects e.g. kube-cert-manager.

Importing cert-manager as a Module

⚠️ Please note that cert-manager does not currently provide a Go module compatibility guarantee. That means that most code under

pkg/
is subject to change in a breaking way, even between minor or patch releases and even if the code is currently publicly exported.

This lack of a Go module compatibility guarantee does not affect API version guarantees under the Kubernetes Deprecation Policy.

Security is the number one priority for cert-manager. If you think you've found a security vulnerability, we'd love to hear from you.
