  Subject: Cert Based Autnentication problem (POST)


  I have configured certificate based authentication for a URL and the related
  directive is as follows:

  <Location /myapp/strongauth/>
      SSLVerifyClient require
      SSLVerifyDepth 1
      SSLOptions +StrictRequire +OptRenegotiate +StdEnvVars +ExportCertData
      SSLCACertificateFile /usr/local/apache/conf/ssl/cacert.pem

  Authentication works fine, but after that POST submits do not work. I get
  the error as follows:

  Here are some details:

  1. It is the "SSLVerifyClient require" directive that causes the problem. I
  tried the access under HTTPS without client side cert auth and also by
  changing the directive to "SSLVerifyClient none." The POST works fine under
  those conditions. However, once client side cert auth is required, it fails
  to work.

  2. I tried opening up access for the POST method through use of other
  directives like <Limit>, <LimitExcept> and the SSLRequire option with
  REQUEST_METHOD. I did not get any better results.

  Please help through this problem. Has anyone configured this successfully?
