AWS Certificate Manager Private Certificate Authority now supports root CA hierarchies

Certificate authority (CA) administrators can now create a private CA hierarchy, including root and subordinate CAs. A CA hierarchy is a way to organize CAs that provides strong security and restrictive access controls for the most-trusted root CA at the top of the hierarchy, while allowing more permissive access and bulk certificate issuance for subordinate CAs lower in the trust chain. This feature expands ACM Private CA capabilities from a single level hierarchy that required you to operate your root and intermediate CAs, to an AWS-managed solution that provides a full CA hierarchy without the need to maintain external root CAs.
