Launched: Mutual TLS security policy for APIM


We are thrilled to introduce a significant enhancement to our SnapLogic API Management solution — the Mutual TLS (mTLS) security policy, intended to strengthen the security of your APIs and ensure the utmost data protection and access control.

Mutual TLS (mTLS) is a robust security protocol that authenticates both the client and the server in a communication channel. Unlike traditional TLS (Transport Layer Security), where only the server is authenticated, mTLS requires clients to present their certificates as well. This bidirectional authentication enhances security in various ways:

  1. End-to-End Trust: With mTLS, there is a higher level of trust as both the client and the server authenticate each other. This prevents unauthorized parties from accessing your APIs.
  2. Data Encryption: mTLS ensures that data is encrypted not only in transit but also from the client to the server, protecting sensitive information from eavesdropping.
  3. Access Control: By using client certificates, you can implement fine-grained access control, allowing only trusted clients to access specific resources.
  4. Protection Against Impersonation: mTLS mitigates risks associated with client impersonation, as clients must prove their identity via certificates.

    By enabling mTLS security policy in SnapLogic APIM, you can achieve

    1. Enhanced Data Protection
    2. Regulatory Compliance
    3. Prevention of Unauthorized Access
    4. Protection for Sensitive Information
