  • 1.  SSL Connection Between CA API Gateway & AWS RDS( MySQL)

    Posted 01-02-2020 10:34 AM
    Hi All,

    We are using CA API Gateway v9.3 and its database is external in AWS RDS (MySQL).
    How can I find out whether the gateway is using SSL/TLS connection to connect to database or not ?

    If I need to make it SSL enabled, I can add the RDS public certificate in gateway.
    But how will gateway find out, which certificate to use for db connection, among so many certificates?

    Please guide.

    Regards,
    Amit Jaiswal

    Hi Amit,

    We do not have an officially documented MySQL SSL connection process in our general Gateway docs. But there is a community post where this has been tried. It talks about certain parameters you need set on the Gateway:

    https://community.broadcom.com/enterprisesoftware/communities/community-home/librarydocuments/viewdocument?DocumentKey=eb4a6762-9454-4b01-807e-db53b72e8762&CommunityKey=0f580f5f-30a4-41de-a75c-e5f433325a18&tab=librarydocuments

    Are you looking for TLS 1.2 support? If so, you would need to be on at least Gateway 9.3 CR4.

    Thanks,
