Subject Re: Different SSL Certificates for transportConnector vs networkConnector
Date Wed, 05 Jan 2011 09:26:56 GMT
You cannot generally divide security between connectors, so
authentication is the same no matter which one is used. What you can
do is to define different authorization groups depending on which
certificate is used. See
for more details.
