Subject [users@httpd] client-certificate-authentication
Date Mon, 14 Feb 2005 02:43:28 GMT

  Have a question on client-cert-auth.  We have an
application "A" at the site, it
needs the client-cert-authentication on its sub-site
"/A/B/". We redirect "/A/B/" to another web server
instance to process the
client-cert-auth.  However, the other istes of "A" do
not need client-cert-auth, for example  So, we redirect "/A/C/" back
from to
 My question is here, "Will  the client-cert be
included in the 2nd redirection?"
I think it won't.  There are two HTTPS sessions, the
1st one is the connection between client and server, the 2nd one is the
connection between client and
server.  The 2nd redirection is just a switch from 
2nd session to the 1st one.  the Cert should not be
included in this switch.  However, I hope some one can
explain it more clearly and confirm it if I am right.
