I am creating an application using axis2, tomcat in which I need to have client authentication ( mutual ssl authentication ). Client authentication part is working fine, but can somebody please tell me whether there is a way to obtain the client certificate that was used to establish the ssl connection? As in, like we can have HandshakeCompletedEvent using which we can obtain the peer certificate chain, similarly do we have any support in tomcat /axis2 ?

I came across a solution to call "request.getAttribute("javax.servlet.request.X509Certificate")", but in axis2 how can we get the request object as it is the SOAP request invocation!
