Can ColdFusion call a web service that requires a client
I have 2 CF web servers, one is the provider and one is the
consumer (both CF MX7 Enterprise on Windows 2K). The consumer can
access the provider web service under SSL, but when I change the
IIS settings to require client certificates, the connection fails.
Does CF have the capability of sending a certificate?
I have read many past posts and I have loaded the necessary
(I think) certificates into the keystore. Even if the certificate
is present, it appears there is no method for getting CF to pass
I would like to follow up on this question since no one has
been able to answer. I assume CF can not access a web service that
requires a client certificate for authentication. Does anyone know
if this can be done by directly calling one of the many Java
classes that ship with CFMX7?
You can use
issue HTTP request with the client certificate. However, you would
need to create the entire service request on your own. Also, I
remember that there was a post that somebody used CFX_HTTP5 to
implement a proxy for this: instead of callig Web-service directly
you use an intermediate page to attach a certificate.
