Where do I need to configure my CA-Signed certificate to establish connectivity with AWS Kinesis Firehose?



I am trying to establish connectivity between AWS Kinesis Firehose and a Splunk HF using version 6.0.0 of the Splunk Add-on for AWS, and I am having trouble configuring the CA-signed certificates.

I am following this documentation, and since my HF is within AWS private cloud I am following this section that has the prerequisite for "the HEC endpoint to be terminated with a valid CA-signed SSL certificate".

I have a valid CA-signed SSL certificate but I am unsure about where I need to install it. So far I have updated server/local/web.conf with the certificates so that web UI is secure. Do I need to make any additional adjustments on the HF concerning the certificates? For example, do I need to update inputs.conf in any way to secure HTTP communication?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thank you and best regards,
