Sun Directory Server Enterprise Edition 7.0 Administration Guide

ProcedureTo Configure Certificate-based Authentication

For information about certificate-based authentication of clients, see Configuring Certificates in Directory Proxy Server in Sun Directory Server Enterprise Edition 7.0 Reference. This section describes how to configure certificate-based authentication.

You can use DSCC to perform this task. For information, see Directory Service Control Center Interface and the DSCC online help.

Note –

Certificate-based authentication can only be performed over an SSL connection.

  1. Configure Directory Proxy Server to require a client to present a certificate when the client establishes an SSL connection.

    $ dpconf set-server-prop -h host -p port allow-cert-based-auth:require
