I have bunch of GRPC microservices and they are using self signed certs. I add authentication info to the GRPC channel which is then used to identify endpoints and provide right services.
Now I want migrate to Istio mTLS.
In phase one, I got Istio to BYPASS all GRPC connections and my services works as it is now.
In Phase two, I want to hand off TLS to Istio, but I am stuck on how to pass the authentication information to GRPC?
How do you handle auth in Istio mTLS setup?
GRPC can support other authentication mechanisms Has anyone used this to inject Istio auth info to GRPC? any other suggestions on how you implemented this in your setup
