Configure SSL/TLS related settings in Kreya.

TLS client certificates

TLS client certificates can be configured using the certificates settings. You can find them in the application menu via Project > Certificates.

Currently, two types of certificates are supported:

  • Single file certificates, which contain both the private key and the certificate. Supports both binary (DER) and Base64 encoding.
  • Certificates consisting of a private key and a certificate file. Supports valid RFC 7468 PEM-encoded files.

Kreya only stores the path to these files. If you intend to share your Kreya project, make sure that the paths stay correct. Kreya uses relative paths by default, but you may also use system environment variables like %APPDATA% or ${GOPATH}. They will work on any OS, regardless of the format.

We recommend that you only use certificates secured by a password, especially if you share your Kreya project. To keep the password from being synced in plain text, use templating in combination with user specific environment data to make sure that the password never leaves your computer.

As a final step, select the certificate in the "Auth" tab of the operation.

Disable SSL/TLS server certificate validation

Sometimes, for example when calling a local API, you find yourself working with invalid TLS server certificates. Kreya allows you to disable the server certificate validation, in which case it simply accepts all server certificates as valid.

Head over to the default settings section if you want to disable the server certificate validation only for specific environments.
