Subject Re: Proposed: PKI Authentication for secure web access
Date Sat, 20 Nov 2010 20:19:18 GMT
Isn't mod_ssl used solely for HTTPS (browser-server encryption)? I
would like to use PKI for user authentication like you can in SSH on
top of the encryption provided by HTTPS. The most secure option I see
available for web authentication currently is OTP tokens (RSA,etc)
that only work on one web site.
