Hands-on: unraveling the mysteries of two-way TLS and certificates

Securing web applications has always been a difficult task, especially when it comes to SSL/TLS and Certificates. Most of the time we try to avoid taking this responsibility and toss it to the ops engineer, but not anymore.

During this meetup, Hakan will explain the basics of securing your application with one-way and two-way authentication. He will also explain the concepts of keystores, certificates and the handshake procedure.

After the presentation, there will be a section with exercises to get some hands-on experience on how to set-up your own application with mutual TLS.
