Can't enter website with client certificate on an iPad

Postby stedekay » 07. December 2011 10:14

Hi,

I've configured an XAMPP installation (1.7.7) on an Windows 2008 server to enter a website with client certificates which works fine in Firefox, IE and Chrome.
But when entering the website with an iPad there comes no prompt (as expected) to select a client certificate. It just returns a 403 error.
Using an older XAMPP installation (1.7.4) everything works fine.


Here is a snippet of my ssl configuration:

httpd-ssl.conf:
...
SSLVerifyClient optional
SSLVerifyDepth 10
Include conf/extra/httpd-ssl-papp.conf
...

httpd-ssl-papp.conf:
<Location /test>
SSLRequire %{SSL_CLIENT_S_DN_CN} in { "CERT NAME" }
</Location>

It seems to be a bug, does someone know how to solve it?

Best regards
Stefan

Windows 2008 server
Stefen, would you be kind enough to enter this info into your profile:

Thanks. :)


403 errors are best investigate by first reading the \xampp\apache\logs\error.log file for possible clues.

I changed SSLVerifyClient from optional to require.
After that the iPad gives me the following answer:
"This website requires a certificate to validate your identity" or something similar to this, I just translated it.

It's the same p12-cert like in any other tested browser.
