Last updated on APRIL 13, 2016

Applies to:

Web Cache - Version 10.1.2 to 10.1.2.1 [Release AS10gR2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

- SSL Client Authentication configured with Oracle Webcache
- A J2EE Application is pulling out the SSL_CLIENT_* CGI variables for purposes of authentication
- In Webcache Administration -> Security -> Security Header Configuration -> "Accept SSL client certificates encoded in SSL-Client-Cert HTTP headers" is set to "YES"
- Instead of the client certificate CGI variables, Webcache is passing the variables as per the Webcache certificate
