About Client Cert Inspection

The Client Cert Inspection agent checks the result of the SSL handshake that occurs at the start of a session. It does not, however, negotiate an SSL session. It relies on settings in a client SSL profile that is added to the virtual server. The Client Cert Inspection item can provide the result of the SSL handshake, including certificate revocation status when the client SSL profile specifies a certificate revocation list (CRL).
If using the Client Cert Inspection agent in a per-request policy subroutine, you must have an On-Demand Cert agent configured before it in the same subroutine.
The Client Cert Inspection action provides two branches: Successful and fallback.
