Mutual TLS


Mutual TLS (MTLS) refers to the process whereby a client presents its X.509 certificate and proves possession of the corresponding Private Key to a server when negotiating a Transport Layer Security (TLS) session.

In TLS 1.2 RFC 5246 this requires the client to Client Send Certificate and Certificate Verify messages during the TLS Handshake and for the server to verify these messages.

Mutual TLS is Mutual Authentication using TLS
