Fingerprint Certificate Mapper

The Fingerprint Certificate Mapper maps client certificates to user entries by looking for the fingerprint in a specified attribute of user entries.

Parent

The Fingerprint Certificate Mapper object inherits from Certificate Mapper.

issuer-attribute

Synopsis

Specifies the name or OID of the attribute whose value should exactly match the certificate issuer DN.

Description

Certificate issuer verification should be enabled whenever multiple CAs are trusted in order to prevent impersonation. In particular, it is possible for different CAs to issue certificates having the same subject DN.

Default Value

The certificate issuer DN will not be verified.
