Well thats untrue.  The certificate can be used for user mapping,
authorization, etc.  This is VERY common in the HTTP world.  In a servlet
you can get the certificate, DN, etc from the request object.

That being said, I have extended the server (
mainly so I can do custom SSL implementations so I can easily create a
custom trust manager.  The question becomes how can I associate the cert I
get from the trust manager to an LDAP session?  Neither the trust manager
nor the keystore actually has that context.
