B&C Explorer asks for client certificate

User annoyance and I don’t see what it might be used for. To reproduce you probably need to have a client certificate or it may not appear.

Opening B&C Explorer prompts me with the following the first time:

Then this every time several times and even later while the page is open:

In my FF 46 I don’t have such popups, did you try yet in another browser ?

This shouldn’t occur in any browser.

It appears this doesn’t happen with Firefox, unless I created the certificate so it doesn’t apply to that domain. Not sure how that works. (Guide + openssl pkcs12 -export -clcerts -in client.crt -inkey client.key -out client.p12)

I’m using Safari 9.1.1 (11601.6.17) in OS X 10.11.5 (15F34).


Hey @jooize,

I had set the https server to request a client certificate for a first time visitor. However, you shouldn’t be continually asked to supply a client certificate.

So, I turned off the option in the https server where it requests a client certificate. The popups should be gone now. However, let me know if they still come up.


P.S I never really looked into the benefit of having to request client certificates in the first place, simply because B&C Explorer doesn’t deal with sensitive client information.


Thanks! Good work on the design by the way.
