Could you please assist me with an iRule to pass the client sslcert to the application server backend. I can think of an iRule passing info from certain fields in the ssl cert through the headers, but i am not sure how to pass on the entire cert itself to the application server. I would have done some research by my self, but given my time sensitive scenario, thought of seeking help from the group here. thank you for the help.
I would just add that the PEM format returned with [X509::whole [SSL::cert 0]] will have line breaks it. Example:
===== BEGIN CERTIFICATE ===== Hdurhdudjdushshsjejdushdudjs Hsueyejsusuatagsidushsusjsjdu ... ===== END CERTIFICATE =====
that would probably cause problems as a single HTTP header. I'd recommend either re-base64-encoding that value, or simply base64-encode the raw binary certificate and shove that into the header.
HTTP::header insert "SSL_CLIENT_CERT" [URI::encode [b64encode [SSL::cert 0]]]
