tls.root_cas

An optional root certificate authority to use. This is a string, representing a certificate chain from the parent trusted root certificate, to possible intermediate signing certificates, to the host certificate.

Secret

This field contains sensitive information that usually shouldn't be added to a config directly, read our secrets page for more info.

Type: string
Default: ""

# Examples

root_cas: |-
-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
...
-----END CERTIFICATE-----

tls.root_cas_file

An optional path of a root certificate authority file to use. This is a file, often with a .pem extension, containing a certificate chain from the parent trusted root certificate, to possible intermediate signing certificates, to the host certificate.

Type: string
Default: ""

# Examples

root_cas_file: ./root_cas.pem

tls.client_certs

A list of client certificates to use. For each certificate either the fields cert and key, or cert_file and key_file should be specified, but not both.

Type: array

# Examples

client_certs:
- cert: foo
key: bar

client_certs:
- cert_file: ./example.pem
key_file: ./example.key

tls.client_certs[].cert

A plain text certificate to use.

Type: string
Default: ""

tls.client_certs[].key

A plain text certificate key to use.

Secret

This field contains sensitive information that usually shouldn't be added to a config directly, read our secrets page for more info.

Type: string
Default: ""

tls.client_certs[].cert_file

The path of a certificate to use.

Type: string
Default: ""

tls.client_certs[].key_file

The path of a certificate key to use.

tls.client_certs[].password

A plain text password for when the private key is password encrypted in PKCS#1 or PKCS#8 format. The obsolete pbeWithMD5AndDES-CBC algorithm is not supported for the PKCS#8 format. Warning: Since it does not authenticate the ciphertext, it is vulnerable to padding oracle attacks that can let an attacker recover the plaintext.

Secret

This field contains sensitive information that usually shouldn't be added to a config directly, read our secrets page for more info.
