API Gateway SSL certificate for backend authentication for a Spring Boot REST API microservice


I am trying to implement the solution provided here: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/apigateway/latest/developerguide/getting-started-client-side-ssl-authentication.html for a Java Spring Boot based REST API. How can I go about doing that?

Once you have generated a client cert in API console and configured API to use SSL certificates following the doc https://docs.aws.amazon.com/apigateway/latest/developerguide/getting-started-client-side-ssl-authentication.html , you will have to create a truststore including the client certificate generated on API Gateway. Then, you can configure the truststore for SSL verification from API Gateway to backend. Here is a helpful article to understand the implementation https://dzone.com/articles/hakky54mutual-tls-1
