Extracting X509 certificate fields for use in the workflow

Pete has written a post that goes deeper into some of the flexibility Intel® SOA Expressway Service Gateway gives you when authenticating requests with some WS Security or other digital certificate sent with the message. It’s fine when you know that you need to extract the cert subject and pass that to LDAP for authentication but what about the cases where you need to examine a token within the workflow which would both be simpler to do than call out to a policy decision point like LDAP or Oracle* Access Manager and much, much quicker?
