SSL vs. SSL Client authentication configuration
Posted on 2014-03-27
In SSL client auth, the client sends a cert to the server, the server checks its ACL and to see if it has a matching cert, if so it allows the client to continue.
In SSL, the handshake is more complex, but basically ends up with a Server ACL of certs with private keys, and the client sends a cert that hopefully matches one in the ACL
My question is, is there anything you have to do different to set up a SSL client auth, that you do NOT have to do when setting up the SSL
To put it another way, is the 'set up' the same for both SSL and SSL client auth
