SSL certificate obtained from a CSR generated on Google Cloud Platform provides authentication, integrity, and confidentiality for applications, allowing clients to connect securely over HTTPS. This is an important security measure for any web or cloud application.
By generating a CSR (Certificate Signing Request) on GCP and obtaining an SSL certificate, you are telling clients that the application they are connecting to is legitimate and owned by the entity that obtained the certificate. This prevents man-in-the-middle attacks & other type of fraud.
Here are the steps to generate a CSR (Certificate Signing Request) on Google Cloud Platform:
gcloud auth login
openssl req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout <KEY FILE NAME>.key -out <CSR FILE NAME>.csr
You will be prompted for info to include in the CSR like country code, state, organization name, etc.
Perform following steps to install SSL Certificate on Google Cloud Platform.
