Retrieve ( use ) MDM certificate for HTTP requests


#1

Hi all,

I have recently started development for internal company use. I have managed to do a lot in short time but now I have come to a big show stopper.

External service I need to make REST calls to ( http POST/GET ) requires client certificate to authenticate calls - which is being delivered to IOS device with MDM profile.
This is new territory for me and I would really appreciate if someone could point me into direction is it possible for my app to also use that certificate ? From what I understand mobile Safari is happily using it - so I hope my app can as well.

Thanks!

Raf

First step I always do is to check if Cordova Plugins for this problem exist:

Here is some interesting information:

So there seems to be no perfect solution, but maybe these help a bit?
