ClientCertRequest

public abstract class ClientCertRequest
extends Object

java.lang.Object
   ↳ android.webkit.ClientCertRequest


ClientCertRequest: The user receives an instance of this class as a parameter of WebViewClient.onReceivedClientCertRequest(WebView, ClientCertRequest). The request includes the parameters to choose the client certificate, such as the host name and the port number requesting the cert, the acceptable key types and the principals. The user should call one of the class methods to indicate how to deal with the client certificate request. All methods should be called on UI thread. WebView caches the proceed(PrivateKey, X509Certificate[]) and cancel() responses in memory and uses them to handle future client certificate requests for the same host/port pair. The user can clear the cached data using WebView.clearClientCertPreferences(Runnable).
