mTLS with NGINX
Securing data in your solution is not just a good practice, but a requirement from business owners and customers. Ensuring that your solutions are encrypted across all layers of communication is critical to user adoption. How do you make sure that the endpoints you are talking to haven’t been compromised, or worse, intercepted in flight?
Mutual TLS (mTLS) is one of the ways to not only ensure that the data you are sending is intact, but also that the endpoint is the intended destination. In this session, Shawn explains how mTLS works, and shows how NGINX and NGINX Plus provide authentication for the session and can direct calls to connecting services. He concludes with a discussion of how NGINX Plus, with dynamic certificate loading, can support a more secure certificate handling solution, including certificate replacement via API calls.
