Description: The administrator of an Apache2 Server can restrict the access to a part of his website to authenticated users. This article is dealing with mutual authentication (strong authentication) with X509 certificates, between an Apache2 server and a client. In addition, the client's certificate is protected in the trusted platform module (TPM) of his computer.
With this solution, only granted computers gain access to the site. Also, it becomes more complicated for a hacker to access to the private key of a compromised computer. Indeed, this key is difficult to copy or extract, as it is kept in hardware TPM.
