RE: Need to compare client certificate CN with an entry in /etc/hosts

Jonathan,

The requirement is that we match an existing hostname entry in /etc/hosts with the Client certificate CN (CN has to be the hostname of the client).

Thanks,
Radha.

Please could you specify *exactly* what you need to ensure matches?
It's not obvious (to me!), given what you wrote and given the minimal
information available in /etc/hosts.
