Subject: client authentication with tomcat ssl direct, how to?


Hi,

The tomcat-ssl-howto document is clear on how to set up a server
certificate sufficient for server authentication, and evidently a number
of people on this list have been able to get far enough with client
authentication to see Internet Explorer show the empty Client
Authentication dialog. My problem is how to get farther than that. How
do I get the Client Authentication dialog to actually give me one or
more usable certificates to choose from?

I have tried getting a client authentication certificate and installing
it on IE. (Go to http://sectestca1.rte.microsoft.com. Click on "Local
Standalone CA". Then (1) download a certificate. (2) request a CA
certificate.) However, this has no effect on the problem.

I have tried extracting the tomcat-ssl-howto server certificate with
keytool -export -alias tomcat -file tomcat.cer -keystore
<TOMCAT_HOME>/conf/keystore, and importing that certificate into IE.
This works, but it has no effect on the problem.

I have tried exporting the CA certificate from step(2) above out of IE
and importing it into <TOMCAT_HOME>/conf/keystore. This also has no
effect on the problem.

Could someone please say how to do this correctly?

Jeff
