Subject question on client authentication
Date Mon, 10 Jul 2006 20:21:37 GMT
Hi All,

I've got a couple of questions on using client authentication with
Tomcat.
I have multiple clients that need to communicate with a single Tomcat
server.
It would be ideal if those clients could be authenticated before data is
exchanged.

1) Does each client need a certificate signed by a trusted Certificate
Authority,
or can self signed certificates be used?

2) Is a client certificate bound to one particular hostname or IP
address?  In my
case the clients would most likely be using DHCP.

Thanks for any responses,
Sean
