TruClient Testing with SSL Client Certificates

One of the limitations with TruClient in LoadRunner 11.00 is its inability to allow performance testing when the AUT requires client side certificates for authentication. This limitation can be broken down into two parts. The first issue is FireFox's Master Security Device requires a non-blank password. When you execute a TruClient script that uses a client certificate, it will require you to manually enter the password, even in 'Interactive' mode. The second issue is, there is no way to indicate which certificate you want to present to the web server.

Rextency Technologies' solution overcomes both of these issues. This allows for performance testing using client side certificates with TruClient and it also decreases debugging time by not having to manually enter the Master Security Device password each time you need to run the script in 'Interactive' mode.
