#317 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Allow ssl_verify_client and ssl_verify_depth within locations

Allow the directives ssl_verify_client and ssl_verify_depth within location blocks, so that different approaches can be used when working with SSL client certificates.

It also would be useful to be able to use ssl_client_certificate and ssl_trusted_certificate within location blocks.

Without this feature, WebSockets are significantly less secure because it forces the client-server design to not use client verification within the TLS protocol when Secure WebSocket traffic is run over the same port as the HTTPS traffic. Browsers, including iOS Safari 6 and 7, will fail to open a WebSocket if ssl_verify_client is even set to "optional" much less "on".

There are no plans to add this. Simple solution is to keep servers which require client certificates separate from ones which don't.
