    Frage

  • Evaluating Azure CDN vs. Amazon Cloudfront. Simple question I can't seem to find a clear answer on: does Azure CDN support SSL ? With or without a custom domain name ? Thanks.

  • Hi - yeah I asked this question previously.

    the answer basically is - 

    1) custom domain names don't support HTTPS

    2) your *.blob.core.windows.net - does support 

    Of course, you need to maintain consistency for caching purposes. So basically, if you want HTTPS - and want blobs - you always must use the *.blob.core.windows.net. 

    If you want to use custom domain name - you have to include logic/scripts/files in your package for HTTPS and use HTTP for custom domain names. Yes, this means 2 separate requests for same files.

    Hope this helps.

  • So to summarize: with or without custom domain names, there is no way today to do https on Azure CDN. Correct ? Would have saved me a bunch of time if the docs had just said that ;).

  • Microsoft announced that they support SSL on Azure CDN at PDC 2010.

  • Not for custom domains, which is what a lot of people are after. Hopefully not too far away.

  • Hello there,

    I'm facing this problem. CDN does support SSL but with their self signed certificate. Browsers give warning as untrusted certificate. So it's practically of no use. Don't know why it is taking this long for Microsoft to come up with the solution.
