One Way SSL Mulesoft Configuration

Online learning communities are essential to achieve a productive online learning environment. This is why they are so popular, especially in higher education.

In online learning, community participants create an interactive canvas of diverse reactions and feedback.
These learning experiences instill a sense of belonging and camaraderie that keeps online learners engaged and motivates them to persevere.

However, most instructors struggle to make learners participate in the discussion board because learners attend the courses in their time-space.

However, there are ways that you can use to gradually establish participation and, in the end, a real sense of community.

One Way SSL

As mentioned above in one way SSL only client verifies the server certificates. At the server end, there will be a Keystore that will hold the private and public certificate of the server whereas, at the client end, there will be a truststore that will hold the public certificate of the server.

  • Clients will send Hello and request for the resources on the secure HTTPS protocol.
  • The server will respond with its public certificate (.crt) and send Hello.
  • The client will verify the server public certificate in its truststore.
  • The client sends back symmetric session key generated using the server public certificate.
  • The server will decrypt the symmetric session key using its private certificate and send back the encrypted session key to the client for establishing a secure connection.

    Implementing One Way SSL For MuleSoft Application
For generating Keystore and truststore, we can use OpenSSL or keytool utility. For this article, we will be using keytool which is part of your JDK.
Step 1: Generate Server Keystore
For generating Keystore, we will be using the below command.
