Azure: Free Public cert for a Lab

Recently I needed a free certificate for my Azure Lab. With StartSSL stopped service since Jan 2018 there are still several options left. For example Comodo gives a 90-days trial.

I decided to try Let’s Encrypt service.

Since the service is free (donates are welcome) the process requires some work.

Luckely, I discovered a convenient tool developed by Sverrir Sigmundarson. It work in combination with Let’s Encrypt API Web site https://gethttpsforfree.com/

There is a nice Video Manual at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CzbZKrYo7HA

The tool itself is available on Github: https://github.com/sverrirs/GetHttpsForFree-UI

At the end of the process you get a certificate signed by the Public CA. to bind a private key and convert to PFX use OpenSSL command:

openssl pkcs12 -export -in Cert_cert.crt -inkey domain.key -out cert.pfx
