0902-03 Certificate Authentication

Certificate Authentication

This configuration defines a Certificate User Token Policy (UTP). That means that a client has to authenticate with its certificate. This certificate has to be present in the folder specified by CERTIFICATE_TRUST_LIST_PATH. Otherwise the client will be blocked.

Basic certificate authentication configuration:

  • User Token Policy (UTP) definition
    • Name "AdminCertificate"
    • Certificate authentication
    • User authorized as Admin
    • Trust list with allowed client certificates
    • Rejected list (optional)
    • Revocation list (optional)
    • Issuer list (optional)
  • Endpoint definition
    • Used user token policy (Only UTP "AdminCertificate")

The UTP certificate validation settings may and may not be equal to security certificate validation!
