Customer Provided SSL Certificates

Aside from letting Distil manage your certificate, we support existing SSL certificates for establishing HTTPS traffic. In this scenario, you securely upload your existing certificates by encrypting them using GPG and emailing them to Distil. The dedicated SSL certificate can be a standard certificate, an Extended Validation (EV) certificate, a wildcard certificate, or a Unified Communications Certificate (UCC).

To use your own established SSL certificates:

  1. Speak to a Distil support engineer who will provide their GPG public key.
  2. Encrypt your certificate using the public key.
  3. Email the certificate to the support engineer who provided their public key. We will add the certificate on our side and confirm that it is working as expected, as well as confirm with the customer that the certificate looks good.
  4. Direct your traffic to Distil.
