I'm looking for appropriate documentation or some friendly guidance of how server to server SSL authentication is done with freeipa and if indeed this is
the best way to ensure privacy in such scenarios.

These are the best documentation sources I could find:

Creating certs for FreeIPA hosts: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/7/html/Linux_Domain_Identity_Authentication_and_Policy_Guide/host-certificates.html

Creating certs for FreeIPA hosts: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/7/html/Linux_Domain_Identity_Authentication_and_Policy_Guide/service-certificates.html

With these certificates, you would need to manually configure SSL-based authentication with mod_ssl/mod_nss. Partially related user howto is

I wonder if RabbitMQ has GSSAPI support, that would be more easy to configure with FreeIPA than SSL certs.

Btw FreeIPA 4.2 plans to have much better support for different cert profiles or sub-CAs that you may later use for purposes like this one.


CCing Fraser from Dogtag team for reference.


What we still missing is the client side certs. So AFAIU we would be able to provide certs for one way authentication not two way yet.
It is in works.
