SSL Client Certificate Test Tool

I need to test a process that will interrogate a client SSL certificate and extract data from a particular field as it passes through my load balancer.

This certificate will ultimately reside on a device but the device itself is not available for testing yet.

I therefore need a tool/method that will allow me to generate incoming traffic with the client certificate on demand so that I can test the load balancer extraction.

Can anybody recommend a suitable tool ?

sure - s_client mode in the openssl binary can simulate a client cert - see the "-cert" option.

openssl is very useful for a lot of things when working with certs - the s_server and ASN 1 Parser seeing frequent use here :)
