Description (partial)

The nTED aborts the TLS transaction when the client presents a certificate with digitalSignature included in the KeyUsage extension and that extension is set to critical.  digitalSignature in the KeyUsage extension should be allowed in a client certificate because the client signs a hash of the cumulative TLS handshake to prove access to the client private key (this is in the certificate verify message).

Client certificate contains:
            X509v3 Key Usage: critical
                Digital Signature
