Re: Accessing SVN repository via Apache and SSL client certificate? Almost there, but something is missing.

I have not tried it, but there is an mod_ssl directive called SSLRequire
that you can issue to require certain aspects of the client's
certificate for access to a given area. I can't remember it off the top
of my head, but it looked like it was very powerful. For instance, you
should be able to allow access to only clients whose certificate is
signed by a particular CA, and says they are a member of a certain OU.

You can also use the standard require directive to require a certain
user name be authenticated for access to given areas. You are using the
SSLUserName directive to extract the user name from the certificate right?
