Hello, I wanted I have my emby server running on a server that is accessed by a reverse proxy. This allows me to have multiple domains (other services) under the same IP address. This works great, and I have it running for some time now.
 
Now I would like to enhance the security by adding a required Client Certificate Authentication, so that only authorised personal have access to the server. I configured it on the reverse proxy, and now when I access the server by the Webbrowser (desktop and android) it works, only people that have the certificate installed can communicate with the server. But the app does not work. When I access by the browser it asks me what is the client certificate to use, but in the app I simply can't connect.
 
Is this possible? Or I have some miss configuration?
 
Thank you

Hi, I'm afraid we've never tested this requirement in the android app before. Additionally we also configure the http server to not require client certificate validation, so what you're looking for would require server-side changes anyway.

But this works 100% on the browser, on my desktop and my android phone. The problem is the app's, they don't take into account the client certificate authentication. Please note that all this is done on the reverse proxy side, nothing needs to be changed on emby server.

Ok I see. This would require in the mobile Android app.
