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.
