Subject Re: X509Certificate support
Date Tue, 29 Jun 2010 22:05:07 GMT
Circling back to this - is there a way to have an X.509 realm that
does not require BouncyCastle?  I haven't looked at the patch yet
myself to verify this (I'll check it out sometime this week if I have
time).  I'm not necessarily against having a new 3rd party module for
bouncycastle if the community feels this is needed, but my personal
preference is to avoid that if there is a reasonably clean way of
supporting X.509 without it.
