Subject RE: [PATCH] mod_SSL with Client Authentication
Date Wed, 22 Aug 2001 18:14:44 GMT
Ideally, we should be verifying for a failed Client authentication soon
after a SSL_accept, and a connection closed accordingly.

The stuff that's being done in ssl_hook_Access is mostly to ensure that the
certificate has proper permissions to access that location. It's mostly
concerned with the "SSLRequire" parameter.

client auth is enabled/working in ssl_hook_Access, do you know why it
needs to be implemented here as well?  i realize the 1.x code does this
too, is it to avoid re-negotiation?  i guess that would make sense
performance wise.  i'll take a closer look at your patch soon.
