Require client-SSL certificate for certain content. | Just my blog


Require client-SSL certificate for certain content.

On a kind of "intranet" website, which is secured with username/password combinations and HTTPS I've implemented the next feature:

- Authorized users can read everything on the website

- Files with in their filename "classified" requires a valid SSL-Client certificate...

Here is the output of my apache config:

<Directory /usr/sites/ssl-site/intranet/htdocs>
  Options Indexes MultiViews
  AllowOverride Authconfig
  Order allow,deny
  Allow from all
  AuthName "intranet"
  AuthType "Basic"
  AuthUserFile /usr/sites/ssl-site/intranet/etc/users.pwl
  require valid-user

<LocationMatch .*(c|C)(l|L)(a|A)(s|S)(s|S)(i|I)(f|F)(i|I)(e|E)(d|D).+>
  SSLVerifyClient require
  SSLVerifyDepth 1
  SSLOptions +OptRenegotiate


I still have to sort out some issues, like directories having a directory with the name "classified" in them.
