Hello Maximus, i know ur post is old but it is the only one i have found on this forum that matches the exact same problem. i now know that ssl is not possible w/ catalina403 and jboss244 because the http connector for port 8443 to run ssl in server.xml is ignored or not implemented. however i am willing to run catalina and jboss standalone. tomcat runs ok and jboss runs ok but the autodeployer complains that there is no web container available. any and all direction will be greatly appreciated. thanx, david brown. www.webitplanet.com
I work on SSL client certificate authentication. I have scanned the Tomcat (3.x) and Jetty (embeded with JBoss 3.x) source code to discover that neither implements the CLIENT-CERT auth-method.
I plan to submit a patch to solve this (unless someone tells me that Tomcat 4.x has solved that issue) as well as a patch for non-web client side Security Interceptor.
If someone has clues, suggestion or remarks, I would appreciate your input.
I used Tomcat4 / jboss3 / jdk 1.4 with SSL client and server certificate to identify.
I just reply to a similar request on http://www.jboss.org/modules/bb/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=forums/ this is going to help
