Re: [jetty-users] How to configure client certificate for mutual SSL auth with Jetty?

BTW, what is the best way to retrieve the client-cert from the server-side please? I did the following. Is it the best way?
  protected void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException {
      X509Certificate[] certs = (X509Certificate[])request.getAttribute("javax.servlet.request.X509Certificate");
Somehow request.getAuthType() returns null. Is it because authType is only set at HTTP layer but not TLS layer? Thanks!

Christoph, thanks a lot for the quick reply! After enabling SSL debugging, I figured it out today. I also needed to call setTrustStorePath/setTrustStorePassword. Now it works fine.

Can you show the whole stack trace? I suspect that your server does not trust the client cert. In that case the SSL connection fails. So you need to export the public certificate from your clients key store, import it in a (server) truststore and pass this to the context factory as a trust store.
