Subject Re: SSL working, but how to use a certificate?
Date Tue, 05 Sep 2000 17:17:19 GMT
Hi Ken, I have made the same that you. Have you already solved how to resquest
the certificate to the user?
I need the user certificate to get some info from it. I want to have access to
the certificate from my JSP. Do you know how to do this?

Thanks
