Sending SSL Client Certificate upstream

Hello,

I am modifying my upstream servers so that they require client
certificates
from clients, which are other backend apps making service calls and
nginx
proxying for public requests. Public requests come to nginx without a
client
certificate and are proxied upstream, but since the upstream server
requires
a client cert they fail.

I’d like to be able to provide a client cert to nginx (from local file)
to
send upstream for authentication. Is this possible?

Thanks,
Dave

I have a similar requirement.

Dave,
Did you find a solution for this? The only thing that I can think of
currently is have the servers use a basic http auth instead off ssl
client
cert auth.
