cert-manager is a Kubernetes add-on to automate the management and issuance of TLS certificates from various issuing sources.

It will ensure certificates are valid and up to date periodically, and attempt to renew certificates at an appropriate time before expiry.

It is loosely based upon the work of kube-lego and has borrowed some wisdom from other similar projects e.g. kube-cert-manager.
