This talk covers the use and rotation of TLS certificates in distributed systems to enhance security and the ongoing monitoring of certificate expiry required to ensure uptime. We take a look at Cloud Foundry as a case study on the use of mutual TLS between networked components, where the number of required certificates can grow large and non-trivial to manage. We share some of our own stories with Cloud Foundry and BOSH certificates expiring, the effect this can have on the system as a whole, and methods we’ve used to avoid the downtime this causes.
