SOAP Channel via Apache Reverse Proxy

I am using a SOAP Sender Channel to receive a file from a trading partner. This will be an XML so I have selected teh "Do Not Use SOAP Envelope" option. When I POST a file to the URL, and a username and password it works. However, our trading partner does not have the ability to use a username/password and want is to rely on certificate based authentication.

I believe this would work perfectly, but we have to use an APACHE Reverse Proxy in between the network and our servers. I do not know how to configure Apache to pass the certificate used by the customer to authenticate to our back end server. As our verse proxy is configured, any connection to the back end system looks as if the client request is coming from the reverse proxy, not the front side client.

Is there any documentation available, or any experience trying to do this?

    As this is not PI related, I recommend checking Apache forum for help.
