There is no such thing as SSL pass through - SSL is an end to end
encryption protocol, there can be no middle.

You can do SSL termination on apache and forward the appropriate
sections of the client certificate through to jboss as custom HTTP
headers. You cannot do SSL termination on apache and re-present the
client certificate to jboss.
