    It was discovered discovered that SSL connections with client certificates
    stopped working after the DSA-2795-1 update of lighttpd.  An upstream
    patch has now been applied that provides an appropriate identifier for
    client certificate verification.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.28-2+squeeze1.5.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.31-4+deb7u2.
    
    For the testing (jessie) and unstable (sid) distributions, this problem
    will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your lighttpd packages.
