NGINX/WebDAV - Client-Side Certificate Authentication


#1

Hi there
I’m trying to add an extra security layer to my OmniFocus Sync setup and I’m thinking about the client-side certificate authentication. The configuration in NGINX is pretty simple, I also generated a CA and a certificate for myself, but unfortunately OmniFocus don’t want to use it and I’m getting error (400 - bad request - No required SSL certificate was sent).

Does OmniFocus supports client-side certificate authentication? The valid client certificate is located in Keychain, so it should just work (like in Chrome/Safari).

best,
maciek

Can I just chime in with a question? Are you planning on using the client-side certificate on iOS as well? Is that possible at all?

Yes and yes (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/35870572/how-to-implement-client-certificates-and-server-authentication-for-ios).
