Subject Apache2 SSL with client authentication jk2 tomcat 5 - no user certificate in request
Date Fri, 02 Jul 2004 14:48:52 GMT

I'm running Tomcat 5 + jdk 1.4.2_02 + Apache 2.0.49 (Fedora 1) with
mod_jk2. I can access the  web app through SSL (with client
authentication enabled in Apache) but the following attributes are not
set in the request: "javax.servlet.request.cipher_suite",
"" and
If I access the Tomcat server directly on a port configured with SSL
with client authentication, "javax.servlet.request.cipher_suite"  and
"javax.servlet.request.X509Certificate" are set correctly.

I've tried different versions of tomcat (5.0.25 and 4.1.27), mod_jk2
from the binary distribution and  self compiled and get the same
result. Running a traffic sniffer it seems that the certificate
information is never sent to the tomcat server.

The jk2 configuration (in httpd.conf) is the following:

LoadModule jk2_module modules/
JkSet config.file /etc/httpd/conf/
# default value
JkSet2 workerEnv sslEnable 1
JkSet2 workerEnv forwardKeySize  1

The is the default file from the binary
distribution with the updated uri for the web application.

Is it possible to get the user certificate in Tomcat when using Apache
+ mod_jk2 as a front end?
