Title: METHOD FOR OBTAINING VETTED CERTIFICATES BY MICROSERVICES IN ELASTIC CLOUD ENVIRONMENTS
Abstract:
A method and is provided for obtaining a vetted certificate for a microservice in an elastic cloud environment. The microservice receives a one-time authentication credential. The microservice utilizes the one-time authentication credential to obtain 5 a client secret. The microservice obtains an access token and CSR (Certificate Signing Request) attributes using the client secret and constructs a CSR utilizing the CSR attributes. The microservice requests a vetted certificate from a Certificate Authority (CA) and includes the access token and the CSR in the request. If the access token and the CSR pass vetting at the CA, the CA sends a vetted certificate to 10 the microservice.
