SEUM supports client certificates beginning with v1.5


  • Web Performance Monitor (WPM)



The following are the details of how this is done:


  1. A transaction is recorded. If a page requests a client certificate, the recorder displays a dialog displaying certificate selection.
  2. The user selects a certificate and the name, issuer, and other identification data is saved into the recording. The certificate itself is not stored.
  3. When the recording is played back, SEUM handles the certificate request when a certificate is requested by a page. The player tries to find an existing certificate that matches the information stored in the recording.
  4. If a matching certificate is found, it is sent to the page. If a matching certificate is not found, the request is canceled which usually ends with an Access Denied response from the page.


Note: The certificate must already be present and available on the player machine.
