The renewal command invokes the workflow to renew any AWS Certificate Manager (ACM) Private Certificate Authority (CA) certificate which has been generated by ACM. The private certificate can then be exported anywhere: to Amazon EC2 instances, containers, devices, or on-premises servers outside of AWS. The renewal command is for developers who want to test the managed renewal and deployment of their ACM Private CA certificates and validate end-to-end operations. Developers use ACM Private CA certificates to identify resources within an organization and establish secure encrypted communications channels with clients, servers, applications, services, devices, and users.

ACM Private CA is a managed private CA service that helps you easily and securely manage the lifecycle of your private certificates. ACM Private CA provides you a highly-available private CA service without the upfront investment and ongoing maintenance costs of operating your own private CA. ACM Private CA extends ACM’s certificate management capabilities to private certificates, enabling you to manage public and private certificates centrally.

For a list of regions where ACM Private CA is available, see the AWS Regions and Endpoints documentation.

For details on the renewal command visit the ACM manual renewal documentation page. First time ACM Private CA customers can try the service for 30 days with no additional charge for the operation of their first CA. Visit the ACM Private CA website to learn more about ACM Private CA.
