Redis Cache Premium

Curious.
The documentation and testing requires that SSL=true be set in connecting to a redis cache.
But there is no root cert or anything passed at runtime.
A cert isnt required for authentication then - but will still run over SSL ?

see
https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-cache-for-redis/cache-python-get-started

^^ No mention of cert requirements - but SSL=True is mandatory.
So the code works but

  1. We passed no SSL cert in code
  2. There was no ssl_ca_certs set on client server

[on24admin@e3-jfaktest01 ~]$ env | grep -ic ssl_ca_certs

    Hi,@John Fak Thanks for posting your question in the Microsoft Q&A forum.

    No client cert is required to use TLS encryption because we do not do mutual TLS authentication. We only support the client authenticating the server’s certificate.

    I hope this information helps.

    Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

    Regards

    Geetha
