Severity: 3-Major


When a session is restored using a session-ticket, the peer-cert-mode setting is not acknowledged.


The SSL client is validated only once, instead of each time.


-- Session tickets are enabled. -- The peer-cert-mode in the client SSL profile is set to `always'. -- A session is restored using a ticket.


Disable session ticket.

Fix Information

If peer-cert-mode is set to 'always', session tickets will not be issued. This is the same behavior as is seen with session ID resumption.
