I can find some tutorials provided by the community, but I can't find any official documentation coming from F5.
Is Let's Encrypt validated by F5 for Big IP ?
What should F5 validate?
Let's Encrypt is a free, automated, and open certificate authority.
it's an independent process of F5, If you want to provide/host a service with cert generate by this CA in F5 you have to set chain and validation should be done by your Browser...
I think the confusion (at least for me) is the shell scripts that need to be created on the automation side in order to get it to work. I know that DevCentral has done a piece on getting Let's Encrypt to work on the F5 but it doesn't appear as straight-forward as importing a cert and key into File Management and attaching it to a profile.
If you attempted to create the shell scripts and something broke, could you call up support and get help?
Thank you for the clarification!!!
No problem. As I'm not an experienced Linux user, I've been hesitant to set this up. I do have a test environment that I can test in but the real question for me resolves around support and if there is any via F5.
Thanks to Youssef for your fast answer
Thanks to shann for the clarification.
And, I understand that F5 let me install any certificat I want.
I'm surprised that F5 does not provide any official package/script, when some others solutions (not good as Big IP) does.
Let's encrypt without automatic renewal will limit the usage.
Did you find any official article from F5 ?
There doesn't appear to be an official supported method for F5 BIG-IP at the moment. in general running things on a schedule is not something the BIG-IP platform support natively easily. so you either work it out with the dev central provided info or built something yourself. and no, that won't be supported, they will help you up to some point.
Thanks Boneyard! That's what I thought but wasn't 100% sure if they would support it.
