Subject serving pdf with CLIENT-CERT authentication
Date Mon, 09 Aug 2004 12:39:11 GMT


I'm running an application with SSL-client certificate authentication.
It works fine, except one servlet that serves a PDF document. Yet that
servlet worked fine on a Tomcat 4.x.

Now, on a Tomcat 5.0.25, I get the following problem : when my Internet
Explorer 6 requests for the servlet, I get a popup ("open", "save",...),
which I didn't get with my Tomcat 4.x, and when I try to "open" or
"save" the PDF, Internet Explorer complains about the server

Enabling SSL trace, I don't see any error and I can see a few "WRITE:
SSLv3 Application Data" correspunding with the PDF served.


That's all the more surprising since it works fine on Tomcat 5.0.25 if I
use SSL with server authentication only and no security constraint in my
web app.


Any idea ?
