Installing an SSL certificate is essential if you’re utilizing Google Cloud Platform (GCP) to encrypt all data transactions & guarantee the security of your users. With SSL Certificate installed, you can fend against malicious attacks & give your users a safe browsing environment. We’ll walk you through the process of installing an SSL certificate on your Google Cloud Platform in this manual.
Generate CSR and Private Key
Even before you install your SSL certificate on GCP, you must generate a CSR – Certificate Signing Request. It is a piece of code that contains the details of the entity requesting it – domain name and public key. Generating CSR is not as complicated as it sounds. With our easy-to-use CSR generator tool, you can generate a high-quality CSR in just a few clicks. All you must do is fill in the necessary information.
Once your certificate is signed by the Certificate Authority & the files are sent to you via email, it’s time to install it. The installation process starts with gathering all the essential SSL files.
Extract the SSL certificate files from the ZIP file which was sent by the Certificate Authority in you inbox It includes the following important SSL files.
Though the Zip file contains three types of files, you only need the Yourdomain.crt and Yourdomain.ca-bundle files to install an SSL Certificate on Google Cloud Platform. Hence, you must make sure these two files are accessible for the installation process.
Note: You can find the file containing the Private Key code in the same directory as the CSR file.
Note: Alternatively, you can upload the files directly using the Browse option. To proceed with the upload, all you must do is provide a Private Key file and a combined certificate file.
If you want to detect any issues in the SSL installations, you can always go for online SSL Checker Tool. It will help you verify the installation process.
