One of my customer has asked this question. I have no idea what they are talking. If anyone can understand this question please help. Question is

Do you know if the JBOSS/TOMCAT web server can be configured for a client cert being required to login?

thanks
Imad

I'll make a guess, but it is just a guess. The user wants to use the client authentication feature of SSL to authenticate to a website, instead of username/password. SSL's client authentication is certificate-based.

I would think googling on something like "tomcat ssl client authentication" would get you information on how to configure tomcat to do this.
