The "get-client-cert" Function Doesn't Work With Oracle iPlanet Web Server 6.1 SP12 (Doc ID 1557921.1)

Last updated on APRIL 03, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle iPlanet Web Server - Version 6.1 to 6.1 [Release 6.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

 Siteminder webagent is being used with Oracle iPlanet Web Server 6.1. It has an authentication scheme that accepts X509 certificate. To achieve this the following directive is added to the  obj.conf of the web server:

PathCheck fn="get-client-cert" require="0" dorequest="1"


However, the certificate pop-up is not displayed on the browser with Oracle iPlanet Web Server 6.1 SP12. When the same authentication is configured with Web Server 6.1 SP17, it works fine. What is contributing the difference between 6.1 SP12 and 6.1 SP17?
