IPA doesn't support user SSL certificates at the moment, so that's the
first hurdle. It is being worked on for 4.2. You'd need to include the
PKINIT EKU in the client cert, something that should be configurable
when the work is done.

The second problem is that the IPA PKINIT configuration is rather
incomplete at the moment. I'm not sure if it is sufficient in it's
current state, even with properly formatted certificates.

And even further, I"m not familiar enough with PKINIT to know whether a
web-based SSL authentication is enough to get a ticket.
