Pinned topic How to pass client certificate to back end application
Re: How to pass client certificate to back end application2005-04-14T15:20:27ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.WebSeal does not have this features... and I think this is not possible because the certificate can be passed to the server only within a SSL handshake.
If WebSeal should do that it should impersonify the end-user but actually for security design WebSedal can create a muthual authentication junction with its own certificate.
hope this help
Re: How to pass client certificate to back end application2005-04-14T18:54:21ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.I did not mean WebSeal should establish an SSL using the end user certficate. Rather what I am looking for is, configure WebSeal to pass just the end user cert as an attribute in the IVCredentials that it passes to the back end application.

well I can see two possible solution:
1) write a custom CDAS that allow client cert authentication and add the certificate as an extended attribute in the credential.. but I'm no sure how the cdas can interact with GSKIT api i order to get the certificate
2) use the default CDAS library that add tag-value attribute to the credential in this case you need that any user certificate is stored in the LDAP person objectclass
for more detail look at

Have you solved this problem?
I am trying to do the same thing.. In my case;
1. client provides client certificate to webseal and logs in
2. client accesses junction, the target application asks for client certificate.
i want webseal to pass the client certificate to the target application.
please help me how to achieve this.
