Dynamic SSL Certificates and Other New Features in NGINX Plus R18 and NGINX Open Source


A key enhancement introduced in NGINX Plus R18 is simplified provisioning of SSL/TLS certificates. More than 87% of websites now use SSL/TLS to encrypt communications over the Internet, with end-to-end encryption now the default deployment pattern for websites and applications. The explosion in certificates means some companies are managing many thousands of certificates in production environments. This calls for a more flexible approach to deploying and configuring certificates.

In this webinar we discuss how to load SSL certificates dynamically, along with other configuration, security, and reliability challenges, with new features in NGINX Plus R18 and NGINX Open Source.

In this webinar, we’ll cover:

How to load SSL certificates dynamically along with a live demo

About new OpenID connect enhancements such as opaque session tokens as a browser cookie

How to use NGINX to reverse proxy FTP servers using new listen port ranges

About key-value store enhancements, more flexible health checks, and all the new features in this latest release
