1. Securing AI Development Environments with DigitalOcean Managed SSL


    To secure an AI development environment with a managed SSL certificate on DigitalOcean, you'd need to set up a DigitalOcean Certificate. This certificate will be used to enable SSL/TLS encryption to your application or services running on DigitalOcean. The SSL certificate ensures that the data transferred between the users and the service is encrypted and secure.

    Here's what you'll typically need to do:

    1. First, you'll have to purchase a domain name or use an existing one that you want to secure with an SSL certificate.
    2. Create a DigitalOcean Certificate resource with the domain name(s) you wish to secure.
    3. Attach this certificate to other resources such as Load Balancers or Apps to ensure traffic to these resources is encrypted.

    Below is a Pulumi program written in Python that demonstrates how you would automate the provisioning of a managed SSL certificate for your domain on DigitalOcean. Keep in mind, you will have to have a DigitalOcean account, have Pulumi installed and configured with access to your DigitalOcean account, and the domain you wish to secure must be managed within your DigitalOcean account.

    import pulumi import pulumi_digitalocean as digitalocean # Domain names that you want to secure with SSL certificate. # Replace 'example.com' and 'www.example.com' with your actual domain names. domains_to_secure = ['example.com', 'www.example.com'] # Create a DigitalOcean managed SSL certificate managed_ssl_certificate = digitalocean.Certificate("my-ssl-cert", name="my-ssl-certificate", type="lets_encrypt", domains=domains_to_secure) # Export the certificate ID pulumi.export("certificate_id", managed_ssl_certificate.id)

    Here is the breakdown of each part of the program:

    • We start by importing the necessary Pulumi libraries for Python scripting.
    • The pulumi_digitalocean library specifically is the Python client for DigitalOcean on Pulumi.
    • We then define a list of domain names that we want to secure. These should be domains you control, and they will need to have their DNS managed by DigitalOcean for the Certificate to be able to verify ownership.
    • We create a resource named 'my-ssl-cert' using digitalocean.Certificate. The "name" argument gives a human-readable name to the certificate. The "type" argument specifies that we are using Let's Encrypt to create our free SSL certificate. The "domains" argument takes in a list of domains we defined earlier, which the certificate will secure.
    • Finally, we export the certificate ID for use in other parts of our Pulumi code or for referencing in the Pulumi stack outputs.

    After running the Pulumi program, Pulumi calls DigitalOcean's API to provision a managed SSL certificate for your domain. You can now use this certificate's ID to secure your AI development environment by attaching it to any applicable resources, such as a load balancer or a DigitalOcean App platform app, that you have on DigitalOcean.

    Remember that the actual provisioning of the certificate will require a domain verification step, which is typically automated when your domain is already on DigitalOcean. If additional configuration or a DNS challenge is required, refer to DigitalOcean's documentation.
