You need 2 different webapps 
one which implements  SunFakeTrustSocketFactory for implementing unsigned server certs
..which would NEVER be used in Production Environment
this would allow someone's client to hack in with their own self-signed certs

one which implements
provided requesting client has a valid (public) key of type RSA AND your client or B2B requesting
entity supports JSSE key exchange
this would prevent someone's client to hack in with their own self-signed certs

so the question is are you implementing with self-signed certs OR are you using CA level certs
(such as certs obtained from Verisign or Thawte)

Also why are you mentioning about the refactoring to different web apps? I am asking about
client side code

 need to skip any server authentication in some requests (e.g. use SunFakeTrustSocketFactory).

MG>you need to retask this to use 2 separate webapps

MG>one which not authenticate which will use SunFakeTrustSocketFactory

MG>this is very clumsy and your options for specifying the security algorithm of your choosing
as well as custom keysize are quite limited

Subject: Axis SSL authentication help!

Hi,I am
 using Axis 1 and need to do SSL authentication of a web service.I found that I need to use:
    "com.example.MySSLSocketFactory"); to set my custom factory and trust managers.Problem:
I also need to skip any server authentication in some requests (e.g. use SunFakeTrustSocketFactory).I
assume that this AxisProperties.setProperty is some central property that affects all threads,
right? So how could I implement my use case?Keep reseting AxisProperties.setProperty before
each web service call? Is this the proper way? But I found this bug ticket
 that seems to complaint that once the socket factory is set in AxisProperties it is cached
and any new setting has not
there a workarround for this?If you could help me here it would be great guys!Thank you
