ASM vs to APM vs and client certificates
I had a VS which imposed a client certificate requirement to access it
Now I have to set this up as
ASM -> APM because I want ASM to interact first
My issue now is how do i get the client certificate information back to the APM vs when the tls session is terminated on the ASM VS
I was hoping to send the cert via a header to the back end - but I can't seem to write to ssl::cert
I think you are looking for C3D (Client Certificate Constrained Delegation), this feature allows the BIG-IP to forge a client certificate for use in server-side client certificate authentication. The forged certificate is generated using information from a client certificate provided in the client-side ssl handshake.
See: K14065425: Configuring Client Certificate Constrained Delegation (C3D)
This way the APM should see the forged client cert with the required attributes for user authentication.
