An Overview of SSL on Microsoft Azure

SSL on Microsoft Azure

Azure is Microsoft’s cloud computing platform, a growing collection of integrated services including analytics, computing, database, mobile, networking, storage, and web.

There are only a handful of Azure services that currently allow custom SSL Certificates to be installed. Those currently are:

  • Azure Web Apps (formerly known as Websites)
  • Azure Cloud Services
  • Azure Virtual Machines allow SSL certificate installation, however that will vary based on the configuration. This is because Azure VMs are standalone cloud servers.
