Subject Re: Retrieving server side certificate durring handshake?
Date Mon, 07 Jun 2004 12:50:29 GMT
Hello Marc,

the latter is the case. For the HTTP protocol, the certificate
doesn't matter. Once the secure connection is established,
HttpClient just uses it. Whether any certificates were involved
when the factory established the connection is of no interest
to HttpClient. You may have to implement your own protocol
factory. Whether it will be possible to determine the factory
level information for a connection, I cannot tell. If not, let us
know and we'll discuss what hooks should be added.

I have the http libraries working with SSL, but I need to be able to 
retrieve the server's certificate on connection.  I looked at the easy 
ssl protocol handler, but I didn't see anything that let me do this. 
Am I missing something, or is this handled at the JSSE level?
