Custom Origin Trust Store
By default, Cloudflare’s global network maintains a list of publicly trusted certificate authorities. This means that when using Full (strict) encryption mode, Cloudflare will only trust origin server certificates issued by a CA in this trust store.
Custom Origin Trust Store allows you to upload certificate authorities (CAs) that Cloudflare will use to authenticate connections to your origin server. Use this feature to override the default trust store with your preferred CA or CAs.
When a CA has been uploaded to Custom Origin Server Trust Store, Cloudflare will ignore all default publicly trusted CAs and exclusively use the CA or CAs that have been uploaded to authenticate the origin server.
To get access to Custom Origin Trust Store, you need to have Advanced Certificate Manager enabled on your zone.
To manage origin trust stores in the dashboard, go to SSL/TLS > Origin Server and use the Custom Origin Trust Store card.
To manage origin trust stores using the API, refer to the API commands.
With Full (strict) encryption mode enabled, if your uploaded CA expires and no alternative CAs are valid within the trust store, Cloudflare will not be able to properly authenticate connections to the origin server.
