PKI authentication on the web portal

Does anyone ever had to setup pki authentication on the web portal?

On the help page, it says that is possible to authenticate the clients with x.509 certificates:

"Xsuite also supports Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) authentication by using X.509 certificates. Clients present their certificates to Xsuite, and Xsuite uses its internal certificate chain and a certificate revocation list (CRL) or OCSP to validate the user."


But it´s not clear how it's made...

I changed the Config->Security to enable PKI User Login. And , on the network capture, I see the portal sending an "certificate request" packet. But it seems to be requesting, to the client, certificates issued by "".

Is there a way to setup the portal to accept client certificates issued by an internal CA?

Is it possible to do pki authentication when the clients use CA PAM client ?

Thanks in advance
