Manling Zhang joins Scott Hanselman to show off HTTPS support for Azure CDN custom domains, which enables you to deliver secure content via SSL using your own domain name to improve the security of data while in transit. The end-to-end workflow to enable HTTPS for your custom domain is simplified via one-click enablement, complete certificate management, and all with no additional cost.
Key attributes of HTTPS feature include:
No additional cost: There are no costs for certificate acquisition or renewal and no additional cost for HTTPS traffic. You just pay for GB egress from the CDN.
Simple enablement: One-click provisioning is available from the Azure portal. You can also use REST API or other developer tools to enable the feature.
Complete certificate management: All certificate procurement and management is handled for you. Certificates are automatically provisioned and renewed prior to expiration. This completely removes the risks of service interruption as a result of a certificate expiring.
