Subject: [gentoo-user] Restrict site access by SSL Client Cert?

1 Hi everyone,
2
3 I know that you can restrict access to a certain site using either Basic
4 HTTP Auth or Digest Auth, but I was wondering - can you do the same with
5 an SSL Client Certificate?
6
7 I'd like to prevent access to an ancient web based database to only
8 users that have a Client Cert that I created for them installed.
9
10 Is this possible? I'd also like to provide for IP based exceptions if
11 possible, but if I can't do both, I'll just install the Cert for everyone.
12
13 Thanks,
14
15 Charles
