F5 with MTLS


"I'm looking to configure Mutual TLS (mTLS) on my F5 BIG-IP to secure communication between clients and servers in a pool. Can anyone provide guidance on the steps involved in setting up mTLS on the BIG-IP? Specifically, I need to know how to:

  1. Import server certificates.
  2. Create Client SSL and Server SSL profiles.
  3. Configure a pool of servers with the appropriate SSL profiles.
  4. Set up a virtual server to handle incoming traffic with mTLS.
  5. Any additional configuration steps or best practices to ensure smooth operation.

Any insights or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!"
