What we are trying to do is authenticate to a web service using certificate authentication via the REST driver. We have exchanged and minted certs and ours is in the cacerts keystore that IDM uses.
I believe we should use the TrustStore file as we are using remote server authentication, but no matter what configuration I use I get “401 unauthorised” errors.
I have attempted to use mutual auth as well with the same result.
So to ascertain it is not our end - I believe I have tried every combination with no success - for the auth model we are trying:
- What do we set the Authentication method to, Basic or Anonymous?
- If we set it to basic do we need to set the Authentication ID and do we use the keystore password as the Authentication password?
- Is using the TrustStore correct or should we be using the Keystore, and if so what do we put in the method/ID and password as above?
Anything else I need to know that is not documented?
