Where to find certs for connecting to Docker API on Docker for AWS


(John Bennett) #1

I would like to use dockerode (docker api client for nodejs) to connect to the Docker API in a Docker for AWS cluster. After much googling, I’m still at a loss.

Where do I find the certs on the Docker for AWS cluster so that I can configure an API client to authenticate?

Or is that even the right question? Should I be trying to tunnel over SSH?

Yeah, the engine API is not exposed publicly, so you’d have to run it over an SSH tunnel: https://beta.docker.com/docs/deploy/
