Cloudformation DNS Validated Certificate Resource

This is a cloudformation custom resource which is an enhancement of the AWS::CertificateManager::Certificate resource.

It allows creating a certificate in a region different from the stack's region (e.g. us-east-1 for cloudfront), and allows for creating a certificate for a Route 53 hosted zone in another AWS account.

Usage

To use this custom resource, copy the CustomAcmCertificateLambda and CustomAcmCertificateLambdaExecutionRole resources into your template. You can then create certificate resources of Type: Custom::DNSCertificate.

This resource is also available as troposphere extension, in the troposphere-dns-certificate package

Remember to add a ServiceToken property to the resource which references the CustomAcmCertificateLambda arn. Certificates may take up to 30 minutes to be issued, but typically takes ~3 minutes. The Certificate resource remains as CREATE_IN_PROGRESS until the certificate is issued.

Differences from AWS::CertificateManager::Certificate

It should behave similarly to AWS::CertificateManager::Certificate, except for the differences described here.

The additional Region property can be used to set the region to create the certificate in.

The DomainValidationOption has an additional property Route53RoleArn, which is a role to assume before creating DNS validation records. This lets you create a certificate for a hosted zone in another account.

    When the Ref function is used on the logical ID of a Certificate resource the certificate ARN is returned.

DomainValidationOption

Syntax

DomainName: String
HostedZoneId: String
Route53RoleArn: String

Properties

  • DomainName

    Fully qualified domain name of the validation request.

    • Required: Yes
    • Type: String

    The Route53 Hosted Zone to create validation records in.

    • Required: Yes
    • Type: String
  • Route53RoleArn

    The arn of an IAM Role to assume when creating DNS validation records. This can be used to create the records for a Hosted Zone in another AWS account.

    • Required: No
    • Type: String

Troposphere

If you are using troposphere you can install this resource as an extension using pip:

$ pip install troposphere_dns_certificate

You can then import the Certificate resource from troposphere_dns_certificate.certificatemanager instead of troposphere.certificatemanager.

cloudformation.py is an example of using troposphere to create a template with a Certificate resource.

If you are not using troposphere, you can simply copy the CustomAcmCertificateLambda and CustomAcmCertificateLambdaExecutionRole resources from the cloudformation.json or cloudformation.yaml files.

Examples

The certificate resource looks like:

ExampleCertificate:
  Properties:
    DomainName: test.example.com
    ValidationMethod: DNS
    DomainValidationOptions:
      - DomainName: test.example.com
        HostedZoneId: Z2KZ5YTUFZNC7H
    Tags:
      - Key: Name
        Value: Example Certificate
    ServiceToken: !GetAtt 'CustomAcmCertificateLambda.Arn'
  Type: Custom::DNSCertificate

As with AWS::CertificateManager::Certificate providing the logical ID of the resource to the Ref function returns the certificate ARN.

For example (in yaml): !Ref 'ExampleCertificate'

SubjectAlternativeNames

Additional names can be added to the certificate using the SubjectAlternativeNames property.

ExampleCertificate:
  Properties:
    DomainName: example.com
    SubjectAlternativeNames:
      - additional.example.com
      - another.example.com
    ValidationMethod: DNS
    DomainValidationOptions:
      - DomainName: example.com
        HostedZoneId: Z2KZ5YTUFZNC7H
    Tags:
      - Key: Name
        Value: Example Certificate
    ServiceToken: !GetAtt 'CustomAcmCertificateLambda.Arn'
Type: Custom::DNSCertificate

Multiple Hosted Zones

Names from multiple hosted zones can be used by adding DomainValidationOptions for each of the hosted zones. For example:

ExampleCertificate:
  Properties:
    DomainName: example.com
    SubjectAlternativeNames:
      - additional.example.org
    ValidationMethod: DNS
    DomainValidationOptions:
      - DomainName: example.com
        HostedZoneId: Z2KZ5YTUFZNC7H
      - DomainName: example.org
        HostedZoneId: ZEJZ9DIN47IQN
    Tags:
      - Key: Name
        Value: Example Certificate
    ServiceToken: !GetAtt 'CustomAcmCertificateLambda.Arn'
Type: Custom::DNSCertificate

Wildcards

Wildcards can be used normally. A certificate for a name and all subdomains for example:

ExampleCertificate:
  Properties:
    DomainName: example.com
    SubjectAlternativeNames:
      - *.example.com
    ValidationMethod: DNS
    DomainValidationOptions:
      - DomainName: example.com
        HostedZoneId: Z2KZ5YTUFZNC7H
    Tags:
      - Key: Name
        Value: Example Certificate
    ServiceToken: !GetAtt 'CustomAcmCertificateLambda.Arn'
  Type: Custom::DNSCertificate

Specifying a region

This example uses the Region property to create the certificate in us-east-1, for use with cloudfront:

ExampleCertificate:
  Properties:
    DomainName: example.com
    ValidationMethod: DNS
    DomainValidationOptions:
      - DomainName: example.com
        HostedZoneId: Z2KZ5YTUFZNC7H
    Region: us-east-1
    Tags:
      - Key: Name
        Value: Example Certificate
    ServiceToken: !GetAtt 'CustomAcmCertificateLambda.Arn'
  Type: Custom::DNSCertificate

Assuming a role for Route 53 record creation

In some cases the account owning the hosted zone might be a different one than the one you are generating the certificate in. To support this you can specify the domain validation option property Route53RoleArn with a role-ARN that should be assumed before creating the records required for certificate validation.

If a top-level Route53RoleArn property is specified it will be assumed when validating domains that don't contain a Route53RoleArn domain validation option property.

ExampleCertificate:
  Properties:
    DomainName: test.example.com
    ValidationMethod: DNS
    DomainValidationOptions:
      - DomainName: test.example.com
        HostedZoneId: Z2KZ5YTUFZNC7H
        Route53RoleArn: arn:aws:iam::TRUSTING-ACCOUNT-ID:role/ACMRecordCreationRole
    Tags:
      - Key: Name
        Value: Example Certificate
    ServiceToken: !GetAtt 'CustomAcmCertificateLambda.Arn'
  Type: Custom::DNSCertificate

Additionally you have to allow the assumption of this role by adding this statement to the CustomAcmCertificateLambdaExecutionRole:

- Action:
    - sts:AssumeRole
  Resource:
    - arn:aws:iam::TRUSTING-ACCOUNT-ID:role/ACMRecordCreationRole
  Effect: Allow

If you are using the troposphere extension, this statement is added automatically. The full CustomAcmCertificateLambdaExecutionRole for this example would look like:

CustomAcmCertificateLambdaExecutionRole:
  Properties:
    AssumeRolePolicyDocument:
      Statement:
        - Action:
            - sts:AssumeRole
          Effect: Allow
          Principal:
            Service: lambda.amazonaws.com
      Version: '2012-10-17'
    ManagedPolicyArns:
      - arn:aws:iam::aws:policy/service-role/AWSLambdaBasicExecutionRole
      - arn:aws:iam::aws:policy/service-role/AWSLambdaRole
    Policies:
      - PolicyDocument:
          Statement:
            - Action:
                - acm:AddTagsToCertificate
                - acm:DeleteCertificate
                - acm:DescribeCertificate
                - acm:RemoveTagsFromCertificate
              Effect: Allow
              Resource:
                - !Sub 'arn:aws:acm:*:${AWS::AccountId}:certificate/*'
            - Action:
                - acm:RequestCertificate
                - acm:ListTagsForCertificate
                - acm:ListCertificates
              Effect: Allow
              Resource:
                - '*'
            - Action:
                - route53:ChangeResourceRecordSets
              Effect: Allow
              Resource:
                - arn:aws:route53:::hostedzone/*
            - Action:
                - sts:AssumeRole
              Effect: Allow
              Resource:
                - arn:aws:iam::TRUSTING-ACCOUNT-ID:role/ACMRecordCreationRole
          Version: '2012-10-17'
        PolicyName: !Sub '${AWS::StackName}CustomAcmCertificateLambdaExecutionPolicy'

The IAM role in the account with the hosted zone would look something like:

ACMRecordCreationRole:
  Type: AWS::IAM::Role
  Properties:
    AssumeRolePolicyDocument:
      Statement:
        - Action:
            - sts:AssumeRole
          Principal:
            AWS:
              - arn:aws:iam::TRUSTED-ACCOUNT-ID:root
          Effect: Allow
      Version: '2012-10-17'
    Policies:
      - PolicyName: 'ACMRecordCreation'
        PolicyDocument:
          Version: '2012-10-17'
          Statement:
            - Action:
                - route53:ChangeResourceRecordSets
              Resource:
                - arn:aws:route53:::hostedzone/Z2KZ5YTUFZNC7H
              Effect: Allow
    RoleName: ACMRecordCreationRole
