Hello all, can anyone point me in the right direction on how to get Apache Tomcat 6.0.35 to prompt the user for authentication with his / her X509 cert when they hit any given page? I already have SSL setup and the relevant section of my server.xml looks like:



But I'm not sure what to do next. Ultimately I want to collect the user's cert on the server to make requests to other services that need it so I don't have to do everything via AJAX on the client.

Thanks in advance!
