What is AWS Certificate Manager?

AWS Certificate Manager (ACM) handles the complexity of provisioning, deploying, and managing certificates provided by ACM (ACM Certificates) for your AWS-based websites and applications. You use ACM to request and manage the certificate and then use other AWS services to provision the ACM Certificate for your website or application. As shown by the following illustration, ACM Certificates are currently available for use with only Elastic Load Balancing and Amazon CloudFront. You cannot use ACM Certificates outside of AWS.
