AWS Private Certificate Authority Documentation (API Version 2017-08-22)

CertificateAuthority

Contains information about your private certificate authority (CA). Your private CA can issue and revoke X.509 digital certificates. Digital certificates verify that the entity named in the certificate Subject field owns or controls the public key contained in the Subject Public Key Info field. Call the CreateCertificateAuthority function to create your private CA. You must then call the GetCertificateAuthorityCertificate function to retrieve a private CA certificate signing request (CSR). Take the CSR to your on-premises CA and sign it with the root CA certificate or a subordinate certificate. Call the ImportCertificateAuthorityCertificate function to import the signed certificate into AWS Certificate Manager (ACM).
