        Description

        The customer uses 6u20 on Windows XP in order to use an applet over a https connection.

        Before the applet is fully loaded, a dialog called "Request Authentication" requests the user to select a certificate. However, the cert list is empty and the user cannot select anything. If the user clicks on OK or Cancel on the dialog, the dialog disappears, the applet continues to load and the user can use the applet.
        A screenshot has been attached to this report.

        The dialog box called "Request Authentication" is from the JRE (see also com.sun.deploy.securityClientCertDialog). The dialog that shows an empty cert list and requests the user to select a cert confuses the users.
