Am I supposed to pass some information back to it? Or has this been done just in case someone
would need to do that. extends SSLImplementation {
    public ServerSocketFactory getServerSocketFactory(AbstractEndpoint
endpoint)  {
        return new JSSESocketFactory(endpoint);

and JSSESocketFactory uses endpoint a lot.

The same as of AbstractEndpoint plus a bit more.

1. represents the "server socket", on which Tomcat connector listens.
2. is responsible for socket management regardless of protocol (HTTP,
AJP), especially the "server socket" management.
3. naturally serves as the storage for certain set of configurations
options (the ones that are protocol-agnostic and ones that relate to
socket management).
