    Subject: Double authentication (User & Machine) with VPN SSL

    Dear all,

      I was wondering if with a VPN SSL solution, it is possible to
    authenticate the user and the machine both, with their certificates.
      I know that this could be possible with IPSec Over L2TP (machine
    authentication with L2TP, and user authentication with IPSec), and not
    possible with pure IPSec (just a basic login/password with X-Auth
    available in IKE for a user authentication).
      Just to precise my needs :
        - I'd like to authenticate my users with a certificate because
    this is useful for a remote vpn connection, and also for others needs
    (emails, access to some ressources, applications, etc.)
        - I'd like to authenticate the corporate laptops with a unique
    certificate stored securely on it : this is useful to only allow a
    full network access to the corporate network to trusted machines, and
    also to revocate certificates of laptops that might be stolen/lost.

    Thanks a lot for any help,
