Subject RE: Configure LDAPS with 1x and 2x SSL on ApacheDS 2.0 M8
Date Mon, 26 Nov 2012 04:28:15 GMT
Thanks a lot for all your responses.   I am sorry to hear that client
authentication using X.509 cert isn't implemented in Apache DS.   Is there
any plan to implement this in future releases?   Could someone perhaps point
out which class/package in ApacheDS is responsible for handling the SSL

(looks like a bad config name)

But prior to that It would help us if you can provide more details about the
use case.
