Subject RE: New SSL HOWTOs

That's a good works and we should in with my tomcat-ssl-howto.html :)

There is still things to be mentioned like :

- how to import OpenSSL, Thawte or Verisign WebServer certificates.
- in case of client authentification, how the stuff works.
  2 cases :

  You start you're own CA, using openca ( or part of 
  jonama works ( Then you generate both
  client certs and web-server certs with the newly created CA. Don't
  forget to import the CA cert ....

  You're using Thawte or Verisign or other major CA providers and
  in that case you should import the CA cert.

  That kind of question cover about 95% of the question on 
  tomcat-ssl-howto.html and I saw with your works a great occasion 
  to have a better documentation :)))) 

  What about merging ?
