Question

server client side ssl authentication certificate

Posted August 23, 2013 1.5k views
Hi, I'm looking for a high level of security regarding restricting known web clients accessing our web server and have been told "server client side ssl authentication certificate" is the way to go... other names are 2 way SSL authentication or Mututal Authentication... Does anyone have any tips on how to set this up on a Digital Ocean VPS ? Does anyone have any alternative ideas (and setup tips) for another way of providing this level of security... Note this will be on a LAMP stack ...

"... restricting known web clients accessing our web server"

How many are you talking about?

How many clients are going to be allowed access?
Take a look at this article:

Let me know how it goes.
