Subject Client Certificates with Tomcat 4 standalone
Date Wed, 10 Oct 2001 23:20:43 GMT

I have been trying to set up client-cert authentication and have had no
success at present. The first attempt was to set up ssl and set clientAuth
to true.

<Connector className="org.apache.catalina.connector.http.HttpConnector"
               port="8443" minProcessors="5" maxProcessors="75"
	       acceptCount="10" debug="1" scheme="https" secure="true">
      <Factory className=""
               clientAuth="true" protocol="TLS"/>

The normal ssl works fine with clientAuth=false but when it is true the
browser comes up with an error "the page cannot be displayed".

My second attampt was to setup the default web-app security/protected
example to use CLIENT-AUTH auth.

      <realm-name>Example Form-Based Authentication Area</realm-name>

When I browse to that directory the browser comes up with the same error but
this time the following is in the localhost_examples log.

CertificatesValve[/examples]:  verify: SSLPeerUnverifiedException

Does anyone know what this means, or how I can get this client certificate
thing working.
