What you describe is client certificate. It works with different versions of SSL/TLS.

Client certificate is not supported by the Oracle http/https package up to 10.2.
It is supposed to work in 11g, I have not tried it.

Here we have to provide https 2 way certification for an application. We are still on 10.2.
So the solution is:
 From PL/SQL call a Java 6 servlet running on tomcat on a different box, this detour works, but additional communication creates an additional point of failure.
