Subject Re: Client Authentication not supported in Tomcat 3.x.
Date Tue, 03 Jul 2001 01:20:00 GMT
Tomcat 3.2.1 does not support DIGEST authentication as specified in the HTTP
spec.
Tomcat 3.2.1 does not support SSL client certificate authentication as
specified in the SSL spec.  I think this is what your reference is to.
Tomcat 4.0 already supports the former and will (reportedly) support the
latter by release.
Tomcat 3.2 ^ all support SSL as a transport mechanism either standalone
using Java SSL Extensions or as an Apache plugin with the SSL handled by
Apache modSSL.
