Sun Java System Federation Manager 7.0 User's Guide

Match Certificate in LDAP

Specifies whether to check if the user certificate presented at login is stored in the LDAP Server. If no match is found, the user is denied access. If a match is found and no other validation is required, the user is granted access. The default is that the Certificate Authentication service does not check for the user certificate.

Note –

A certificate stored in the Directory Server is not necessarily valid; it may be on the certificate revocation list. See Match Certificate to CRL. However, the web container may check the validity of the user certificate presented at login.
