Seamlessly request and renew certificates from leading certificate authorities

Venafi Cloud and DigiCert: Expanding Capabilities

Venafi has a longstanding partnership with DigiCert, a premier high-assurance digital certificate provider. 

Our partnership enables you to request DigiCert certificates using Venafi Cloud’s web interface, REST API, DevOps tools, and ACME server.

  • Get free dev and test certificates
  • Easily get and deploy production certificates

Incorporate certificates using our REST API

Venafi Cloud REST API

Powering the functionality behind the Venafi Cloud web interface, the Venafi Cloud REST API gives developers ready access to certificate orchestration. 

How you can use it to move faster:

  • Request certificates
  • Query available certificate issuance policies
  • Review certificate issuance policies 
  • View previously issued certificates 
  • View discovered certificates
  • Build custom reports to track compliance with security policy

Our API is fully documented using the Swagger specification.


Seamlessly deploy certificates with Terraform plans

Our custom Venafi Terraform Provider performs key generation and can be referenced via Terraform plans for seamless acquisition and deployment of certificates.

Get started today and simplify the process of securing your end points.

Incorporate certificates into your infrastructure-as-code

Push certificates into your Docker containers

Our lightweight, dedicated Docker container generates key material and requests certificates for you. Certificates are then securely exposed to other containers running in the same Docker host as the Venafi Cloud container.

Take advantage of our integration to seamlessly deploy certificates to your Docker containers today.

Configure your Salt Master with certificates for your minions

We've partnered with SaltStack and now have a Venafi module for you to use with Salt Open.

Our module consists of a runner module and an external pillar module. 

Simplify the process of getting and deploying certificates by leveraging our integration and push certificates to minions via Salt's pillar system.

Automate certificate management with our ACME Server

Venafi Cloud ACME Server

Are you looking for an alternative to Let's Encrypt? Have you thought about using the ACME protocol to automate certificate life cycle management?

Together, our ACME server and certificate authority integrations give you a winning combination. Now you can use ACME to automate certificate management using certificates from a leading certificate authority, DigiCert. 

Venafi Cloud supports the certbot client.

About the ACME Protocol

The Automatic Certificate Management Environment (ACME) protocol is a communications protocol for automating interactions between certificate authorities and their users' web servers, allowing the automated deployment of public key infrastructure at very low cost. It was designed by the Internet Security Research Group (ISRG).

Get visibility over TLS certificates and centralize management

With Venafi Cloud, you can secure your cloud infrastructure in a jiffy.
