Yes, definitively.

This is not that simple...

SSL is handle in two places in the server :
1) In MINA (the network layer) when you use LDAPS
2) In the apacheds/protocol-ldap module, in the StartTlsHandler class
when you use StartTLS instead of LDPAS.

All the handshake is done by MINA.

Currently we only use the NoVerificationTrustManager class, so it
accepts all the incoming clients.

We certinly want to improve this area. I have created a JIRA for that FYI.
