Subject httpclient v4.2.1 and client certificates
Date Sat, 16 Feb 2013 19:42:52 GMT
Hi all,

I am currently struggling with a problem attempting to use a client certificate to connect
to a secure website using httpclient v4.2.1.

When SSL debugging is enabled, I can see that despite the following -D options being passed,
the keyStore is completely ignored:

-Djavax.net.ssl.trustStore=/path/to/cacerts -Djavax.net.ssl.keyStore=/path/to/certificate.p12
-Djavax.net.ssl.keyStorePassword=password -Djavax.net.ssl.keyStoreType=PKCS12

The file /path/to/cacerts is read correctly, and the trust chain of the remote server is correctly

The file /path/to/certificate.p12 is completely ignored, and the remote server rejects the
connection claiming (correctly) that the certificate is missing.

Can anyone confirm whether a bug exists with httpclient and the ability to specify a client
certificate? All the docs I've read to date suggest that httpdclient reads javax.net.ssl.keyStore,
but the behaviour I am seeing would suggest this is broken.

Can anyone confirm?
