Description

Hello,
I need nginx to verify client and allow every verification result. Not just several allowed errors for optional_no_ca parameter.
This is useful when application want handle all unverified clients.

Is there a chance that such feature will be added?

There are no plans to add such a feature to avoid encouraging people to write insecure configurations.

If you really want to allow requests with invalid certificates, consider using the error_page directive to overwrite processing of certificate verification errors. Something like this should work:

server {
    listen 443 ssl;

    ssl_certificate     server.crt;
    ssl_certificate_key server.key;

    ssl_verify_client optional;
    ssl_client_certificate client.crt;

    error_page 495 = @fallback;

    location / {
        proxy_pass http://127.0.0.1:8080;
        proxy_set_header X-Client-Verify $ssl_client_verify;
    }

    location @fallback {
        proxy_pass http://127.0.0.1:8080;
        proxy_set_header X-Client-Verify $ssl_client_verify;
    }
}
