I would like to write a filter that accesses a client certificate attached
to the servlet request without using a proxy server. And after three weeks
of searching, I'm beginning to feel like it is not possible. Because every
article I've found assumes the request was forwarded from a proxy server.

So my questions are: Is it even possible? If it is, can someone point me in
the right direction? Also, if it is possible, but strongly discouraged for
security reasons, let me know that as well. I am not adverse to using a
proxy server, especially if it is considered a "best practice".

Thanks in advance
