Unfortunately, as you have probably noticed, that drawing does not come 
out very well in this media.  But thanks for trying.

Which makes me think that this has nothing to do with Tomcat per se.
It looks like what you want is that some /application/ running inside 
Tomcat would be able to connect to Apache via SSL, and exchange 
certificates with it.
That would be a pure Java programming matter, and the fact that the 
application itself happens to be running inside Tomcat is purely 
circumstancial and changes nothing to the matter.
Or am I misunderstanding your schema ?
