trusted web certificate

asked 2017-09-29 13:06:38 -0600

Hello, I am new to Puppet but not to Linux. I would like to do the simple task of securing the web interface of the Puppet master like Of course the browser warns me the site is not secure and signed by Puppet Enterprise CA.

Is there a straight forward way to get Puppet to configure NGNIX web server with a proper CA (Verisign or Thawte) or do i need to go in as root and take care of it there?

A few possible solutions.

You could use your own proxy, configured to send traffic to the puppet master, configured as you mentioned, using the appropriately signed certs. You could either do that from an already existing proxy server, or from the same node (go in there as root). This would allow a web browser to work correctly, but it may interfere with puppet’s certificate process if you are trying to use it for master/agent communication.

If you are using puppet on your own internal network, you could add your puppet master’s CA cert to your companies bowsers trusted CA veers.

Also, I found a reference for supplying your own, possibly externally signed certs -
