Description of Problem:
I can not access any of the SSL environment variables on an Apache+mod-ssl 
server under 2.4.9-6 kernel.  For example, with the code:

print out "Inside userlist-cgi-Level 1: ENV{'SSL_CLIENT_O'} = 

the variable $ENV{'SSL_CLIENT_O'} is not defined, but the 
organization/company is part of the embedded certificates for the browser 
clients coming to the secure web site.

I have perl/cgi scripts that query the browser certificates and based on 
information discovered, the users are vectored off to different web sites.

This all works fine under the 2.2.x kernel.

I really do not know if this is a 'bug,' but nothing else has changed 
except the kernel version.

Comment 1 Mark J. Cox 2001-11-23 15:46:14 UTC
With mod_ssl 2.4.9 per default no SSI/CGI variables
SSL_* are created any longer (only the special "HTTPS" variable is
always created). Instead one has to use `SSLOptions +StdEnvVars' (in httpd.conf)
to switch the creation on
