Can someone point me to documentation on setting up authentication using client certificates on Websphere 7? What does WAS send to the browser so the browser knows to send a certificate to the server? How does the browser know when it should send a certificate?

Some long explanation (though specific for the Community Edition) can be found here, at developerWorks:

IBM developerWorks: Client authentication using digital certificates in WebSphere Application Server Community Edition

The more specific information for WebSphere Application Server 7 (not so lengthy) can be found here:

WAS 7.0 Information Center: Secure Sockets Layer client authentication
