    I'am looking for a Certificate Login Howto. Until now I found nothing about it.
    I don't know where to start. Is the login created with an apache or do I have to use PHP to use a login with a certificate?
    The CA is no Problem with XCA I have everything I need to generate the needed Certs. I found tons of Information about SSL, but I don't think this has anything to do with cert login, does it?

    I mean you log in with a certificate and not with your user/password.
    I found this name on a http://www.cacert.org/. That is why i thougt this is the right name. But I couldn't find any information about it.

    No that is not what i meant.
    Login to a website with a cert not with SSH.

    You can login to a website with user / password. Instead you use a cert. I already used this. But I don't know how to install an apache to do that.

    There are security implications with doing this but using the pam system could be a start to designing this kind of system. Here is information on the PAM/X.509 certificate module. http://www.opensc-project.org/pam_pkcs11/
