> Cassandra server should be to be able do additional certificate validations, such as
hostname validatation and certificate revocation checking against CRLs and/or using OCSP. 
> One approach couild be to have SSLFactory use SSLContext.getDefault() instead of forcing
the creation of a new SSLContext using SSLContext.getInstance().  Using the default SSLContext would
allow a user to plug in their own custom SSLSocketFactory via the java.security properties
file. The custom SSLSocketFactory could create a default SSLContext  that was customized
to do any extra validation such as certificate revocation, host name validation, etc.
