As a DevOps engineer at, I am working on the creation of the Production Kubernetes (EKS) cluster with all needed mechanisms for our SaaS, including the TLS certificates issuing for secure communication to and within the k8s cluster.

In this tutorial, I will show how to secure external and internal traffic coming to your application on the Kubernetes cluster by issuing the TLS certificates with the Cert-Manager.

To simplify things let’s introduce the ‘simply’ web app which sits on the Kubernetes cluster, gets external traffic, and talks to DB (internal traffic) which also installed on the same k8s cluster.

Let’s make an assumption that we are able to reach the ‘simply’ app on this domain using the HTTP protocol (port 80).
