Certificate based client authentication with SSL mutual authentication


I have to setup Business Object in a way user can authenticate themself with a digital certificate.

Environment: Business Objects XI3.1 sp3 on a Windows server and Tomcat 5.5 as application server.

The user will access Business Objects InfoView. Instead of entering username and password they should be authenticated by their cerificate. I was able to setup Tomcat in a way it requests a client certificate for SSL mutual authentication. How does Tomcat propagates the userinformation to Business Object? Do I have to write a new Security Plug-In?

Thank you very much for any help.

Kind Regards
