Dec 18, 2023 — Support for mTLS

Limited Availability

With mutual TLS-secured (mTLS) web connections, both a requesting client and the ​Akamai​edge server validate the identity of one another. Each present a TLS identity certificate to the other, and each side verifies authenticity, during the "TLS handshake." Once verified, the identity information is used to authorize additional communication requests between the two.

This support includes the new mTLS Edge Truststore application. It gives you self-service access to manage sets of mTLS certificates used by the client in the process. The Certificate Provisioning System offers new features to support mTLS in your edge server certificates. And finally, some new behaviors have been added to Property Manager to help enforce mTLS use.

For details on setting up this service, see the Property Manager documentation.
