AWS Certificate Manager (ACM) Private Certificate Authority (CA) now offers Amazon CloudFormation resources. You can create templates for the service or application architectures you want and have AWS CloudFormation use those templates for quick and reliable provisioning of the services or applications (called “stacks”). You can also easily update or replicate the stacks as needed. For example, you can use CloudFormation to build and activate an issuing CA and then issue a private certificate from that CA. This feature offers templates for CAs, CA activation and private certificates. 

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 AWS Regions and Endpoints.
