We use standard connection path for certificate-based authentication:
CLIENT (for example curl command) -> CDWS (CD Web Services) -> CD (Connect Direct)
Let's assume that:
CLIENT uses client certificate with CNAME=cert1
CDWS server uses certificate with CNAME=cert2
CD server uses certificate with CNAME=cert3
For more clarity, let's assume, that:
All certificates (cert1, cert2, cert3) have the same issuer and use the same trusted CAs chain.
PROBLEM: No matter which certificate we use on the CLIENT's side (and authorize it in application.properties in CDWS), always we are connecting to CD using CDWS server's certificate. So no matter if on CLIENT we use CNAME=cert1 or CNAME=cert999, then it will be always connecting to the CD using CDWS certificate CNAME=cert2.
we can connect to CD only as one "user", the one which matches the CDWS certificate CNAME, however we need to connect to CD using multiple "users" that are equal to CLIENT's certificate CNAME.
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
Currently software does not distinguish the CLIENTs. Clients may use various certs and this fact should be distinguished.
This enhancement will allow to connect to CD as the user which matches the CNAME of CLIENT's certificate.
