Hello,
I am now running apache (1.2) with ssl patch on my linux box (kernel 2.0.29), it works fine so far. I would like to know more, here is my questions :
Question One
After a user connect to my server and submit a form, then how can I get some information about the user's certificate for that transaction ? I understand that when use with a "normal" www server, my cgi program can get some information about that transaction such as remote host, remote address and remote user via the environmnet variables $REMOTE_HOST, $REMOTE_ADDR and $REMOTE_USER. Is there any related env. variables about the user's cert. ? (50 points)
Question Two
How can I log each transaction ? Since I would like to keep a copy f receipt, so that I can evident of that transaction to show to card centre, bank or the user ?
(100 points)

Thank you for your attention.
Regards
Wong

Possible asnwer for Q1:  Currently, there is no way to parse out data from a client certificate.  You would need to install a web server that can interface with a certificate server and an LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol)server.  Xcert Software - http://www.xcert.com - has  a very good product.  It is called the Sentry Server
