I have started using an on-prem certificate authority on my domain and assigning certificates for various purposes. Now when I try to connect to one of my coldfusion sites it asks me if I want to use a certificate to authenticate myself. None of them work for CF.
Is anyone using this type of authentication and if so how do I enable it so I can use my certs? I am running CF10 Enterprise on Server 2012 using IIS.
Perhaps you need to add the SSL certificate to CF10 Java keystore of trusted certificates using keytool.
Danny, is this really a question about CF? or your external web server (IIS/Apache)?
Are you referring to a means to log into the CF Admin with something other than a username and password? There is no option in the CF Admin for that.
This sounds rather like something you’d do your external web server, for the site set to talk to the CF Admin. (If you use the built-in web server, such as port 8500, then this becomes a question for you to ask related to Tomcat, since the built-in web server is in fact the Tomcat web server.)
I’ll say I’ve not heard of anyone seeking to authenticate the CF admin with a cert (who didn’t do it via their external web server instead).
Let us know if that helps.
