    Hi,

    we are trying to publish a sopa ws via our API Gateway. The service requiries a x509 client certificate authentication. Does anyone know how i can configure the gateway that it uses a client certificate to authenticate agains this backend service?

    i cannont find this int http routing auth configuration.

     

     

    Many thanks

    Have you seen this section of the gateway documentation which may be helpful?

    Hi Bill,

    thanks for your quick reply. yes i have seen this document but it explains only how the gw can authenticate on the publish service. What i need how the gw as client to the backend service can authenticate using a client certificate?

    The gateway will present it's default Private Key to authenticate to a backend by default for any 'Route via HTTP(S)' assertion. You can right-click the 'Route via HTTP(S)' assertion and choose 'Select Private Key' from the menu options there to change that behavior. Select the 'Use custom private key' option to have the route assertion use a specific private key.
