From Alfresco 7.4 communication with Transform Service and Transform Core AIO can be established using mTLS, as described in official documentation https://docs.alfresco.com/content-services/latest/config/mtls/

In order to support this feature, Alfresco SSL Generator tool has been modified to allow keystore generation process.

A practical application for this principle is available in https://github.com/aborroy/alfresco-secure-connectionsecure-communications.png

 

This project configures following protocols and communications:

  • TLS with encrypted credentials from Repository JDBC to Database (Postgres)
  • mTLS between Repository and Transform Core AIO
  • mTLS between Repository and Search Services
  • TLS with encrypted credentials from Repository to ActiveMQ
  • TLS to provide HTTPs for external services via Web Proxy

Additional information
