REST Resource: regionSslCertificates

Resource: SslCertificate

Represents an SSL Certificate resource.

Google Compute Engine has two SSL Certificate resources:

The sslCertificates are used by:

  • external HTTPS load balancers
  • SSL proxy load balancers

The regionSslCertificates are used by internal HTTPS load balancers.

Optionally, certificate file contents that you upload can contain a set of up to five PEM-encoded certificates. The API call creates an object (sslCertificate) that holds this data. You can use SSL keys and certificates to secure connections to a load balancer. For more information, read Creating and using SSL certificates, SSL certificates quotas and limits, and Troubleshooting SSL certificates.
