Can we have this method in a future release?

It is not a big deal to add #getSSLEngine() method to the SSLIOSession 
class, but have you looked at the SSLIOSessionHandler interface? Its 
purpose is precisely to enable users to tune SSLEngine. The benefit of 
using the interface is that it the SSLServerIOEventDispatch class can 
sure that the SSLEngine is configured at the right moment of its life cycle.

SSLIOSessionHandler sslHandler = new SSLIOSessionHandler() {

     public void initalize(
             SSLEngine sslengine,
             HttpParams params) throws SSLException {

     public void verify(
             SocketAddress remoteAddress,
             SSLSession session) throws SSLException {


IOEventDispatch ioEventDispatch = new SSLServerIOEventDispatch(

Would that solve the problem for you?
