Hi,

How can I detect in the http request or response header if the website are requesting a certificate for authentication purposes?

I need this information to generate a special filter rule in our firewall.

Regards

are you talking about SSL/TLS client certificates?
if so, you cannot detect in the response, the client send matching certificaes automatically or ask which one to send
