To acquire client certificate

Hi

I have a web service which I have made secure. The client and theservice go though a 2-way SSL handshake before communicating with each other.

At the server side,

When I try httpReq.isSecure(), I get "true"
When I try httpReq.getAttribute("javax.net.ssl.cipher_suite"), I get "SSL_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_MD5"

But, when I try httpReq.getAttribute("javax.servlet.request.X509Certificate"), I get "Null".

When I print httpReq.getAttributeNames(), I dont see this attribute as well.

Why is this so? What could be the error? How should I go about getting the certificate?

Thanks!
Mani
