Has anybody automated (RPA) HTTP X509 authentication ? Can be done ?
I want to automate a web aplication that requres X509 authentication . Today the aplication works like this : The humen get to an url that is protected with SSL auth . The site requires a client certificate as credentials . This fires browser certificate managment . As result ( iexplorer ) OS certificate election sistem is displayed . The human selects the certificate and the process to automate begins .
I want to know if i can create an RPA robot that will select the apropate certificate ( the organization may use different certificates depending on the process ) . Is this possible ?
If you can determine the correct certificate to select programmatically, the dialogs required may be navigated. Interrogate those as part of your web adapter. The Certificates dialog has a tabstrip which you can use to navigate through the tabs - use the SelectedIndex property to change tabs. The individual tabs have a listview control which contains each certificate. Navigating through the listview will allow you to select the correct certificate.
