I am using Apache Web Server 2.4 on Redhat Linux 6.4.

I have a requirement to authenticate the user using SSL certificates and pass the CN from the certificate in an HTTP header to the backend application. That all works.

I also have a requirement to check that the user from the certificate is in a particular group in Active Directory. Using basic authentication I can look the user up in AD and check that the user is in a particular group (or groups). What I can not figure out is how to combine authentication using certificates and AD lookup! Any ideas please?

Many thanks
