Hello All, I have created a web app and running it over Tomcat 5. I have configured my containers server.xml file to enable SSL on port 8443. Further, I have created a .keystore file using keytool utility provided by JDK It works pretty well.
Now, I want to go a step further and enable CLIENT-CERT method. For this I need to generate client certificate. I want that a user can securely log into a site without typing in a password by configuring his web browser to present an X.509 client certificate to the server automatically. The X.509 client certificate uniquely identifies the user, and Tomcat verifies the user�s client certificate against its own set of certificate authorities, which are stored in the certificate authority keystore within the JRE.
I have checked OpenSSL.com but I believe it�s available only for Unix/Linux platform.
Can anybody help me on this? Thanks! Reema
