Accessing artifacts in Red Hat Network (RHN) requires Redhat’s client certificate authentication before artifacts can be downloaded. For example, accessing the following resource requires a client side certificate authentication.
Currently, Artifactory cannot use the client side certificate authentication; thus it cannot be used to set up Redhat’s repository as a remote repository.
As a work-around, a Redhat administrator can download the artifacts to a local hard-disk, and then upload it to a local yum repository in Artifactory. Afterward, users can use instructions in “Set Me Up” to setup and download artifacts from the local yum repository.
