 Client certificate?
Author: Christopher Masto 
Date:   04-10-01 22:26

You seem to be exporting your SERVER certificate and importing it into your web browser. That's rather strange and confusing. You should probably be creating a separate client certificate (indeed, a separate one for each client).

An important detail that seems to be missing in this article is what to enter when creating the certificate requests (CA.pl -newreq). For a server, it's critical that the "Common Name" be the name of your site (www.freebsddiary.org, for example). Client certificates should use the name of the person the certificate will be identifying.
