As part of a logon scheme, I want to verify a user's identity by checking against his digital certificate.

Thus I need to be able to request a digital signature made by the user's private key.

In Netscape, this is fairly easy through the crypto.signText() method. But this doesn't work with Internet Explorer.

How do I do a similar thing with Internet Explorer?

IE does not supply a function to return a base 64 signed string. Instead you'd have to write one yourself (ActiveX) using the cryptoAPI.

Another option is to download one like the xsigner from xetex.
