    However, I can provide you with general guidance on how to register a client certificate with a player and how the player might send the certificate when requested by a website.

    • To generate a client certificate, you typically need access to a Certificate Authority (CA) or an internal PKI infrastructure. The steps to generate a client certificate can vary depending on the CA or PKI system you are using. Usually, you would generate a private key and then use it to create a certificate signing request (CSR). The CSR is then submitted to the CA for signing, and you receive the client certificate.
    • To register the client certificate with the BrightAuthor player, you would need to check the documentation or instructions provided by BrightSign, the manufacturer of BrightAuthor. The registration process can involve installing the certificate on the player or configuring the player to use the certificate for secure communication.
    • When the player encounters a website that requests a client certificate for authentication, it should automatically present the registered client certificate to the website. The website's server will then validate the certificate and either grant or deny access based on the certificate's authenticity.
