IceSSL new features

nsnsnsns Member ✭✭
I think it is important to have the following two features in IceSSL:
1. The possibility to set the SSL properties programatically;
2. The possibility to verify a certificate with user's function
(only or in addition to the IceSSL procedure). This feature
probably will require to give to the user an access to the SSL
internals such as 'X509 *'.

I'd propose also to publish the alpha version of new IceSSL as
soon as possible, not waiting for the whole release of Ice 2.1.
I'd be glad to test it before the official release.

Cheers, Nikolai

    Hi Nikolai,

    The upcoming Ice 2.1 release will add a Java implementation of IceSSL, but no significant new features will be present in the C++ implementation.

    We do plan to revisit the C++ configuration issue for the following release, and we will also consider providing programmatic access to the certificates.

    Take care,
    - Mark
