Hi, Erman;
   Yes, you can in 2.0. In order to use an engine, though, you must
compile httpd with -DSSL_EXPERIMENTAL_ENGINE. This will enable the
SSLCryptoDevice directive which will be set to the name of your engine.
This compile flag was dropped in 2.2 which made SSLCryptoDevice part of
a 'normal' build.
