Can I setup a remote repository for Red Hat Network (RHN)?

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. 


https://cdn.redhat.com/content/dist/rhel/server/5/5Server/x86_64/os

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.
