I want to implement something in my web application that allows me to check credentials (user / password ) entered on the system login page with a certificate in a token.
I'm guessing that I must do something like that:
to use SSL
2) Once someone entered user/pass, extract data from the certificate to verify against the info on the database
I don't know how to extract the info from the certify and neither how to load the certifiy info. I mean, just by using SSL the browser will load the certify from the token?

You could in theory do it, but why would you want do?
What type of information are you trying to extract?
If the user has authenticated, one would normally look up data in a DB or LDAP/Active Directory.
I agree. Here's the link:

Non SSL based Flex application access to SSL Webservice
overide security behavior in j2me and avoid re-authentiaction in webservice
Keystore was tampered with, or password was incorrect
connect to a SOAP webservice using SSL
