# Problem Statement
Manage SSL/TLS certificate lifecycle for various backends which would include but not limited to
- IPSec VPNs
- HAProxy/envoy proxy
# Existing Solutions
Generate certs using openssl(error prone) or use managed solution(expensive)
- We built kingsly, which would act as broker between clients and letsencrypt, serving the clients with SSL certs.
- It takes care of renewal of certs before their expiry dates.
- extensible by writing custom clients to automate the whole manual process of updating certs with an example client.
