Configuring Certificate based Authentication

Last modified: May 15, 2019 @ 14:21

The Certificate Based Authentication Setting Category should be updated with the client trusted Anchor, so that the HTTP Gateway can use the certificate to authenticate the clients.

To update the Settings Category, do the following:

  1. In the Dashboard, navigate to Gateway and click the Edit button of the Setting Category Certificate Based Authentication.

    Example of Setting Category for Certificate Based Authentication.
  2. Update the certificate (client trusted Anchor) content in the Value field.
  3. Click Save.

Note:

  • The HTTP clients can securely connect to the HTTP Gateway over port 8443 by installing the CA certificate chain in the clients itself. In this approach, only authenticated clients can communicate to the Gateway.
  • Currently, the .pem format of the SSL certificate is supported.
