Website authentication using client-side certificates

You can specify client certificates by configuring key-value pairs in a [email protected] setting in the Admin Portal. Two key-value pairs are needed to use this feature:

one key-value pair for the imported certificate

one key-value pair for the URL of the website to which you want to present the certificate in response to a challenge

Support of client-side certificates allows users to access internal websites that require certificate-based authentication. The certificate is pushed from Core to the device and stored in [email protected] memory.

Limitations

[email protected] supports one certificate per host.

Client-side certificates are supported for non-tunneled websites only.
