IceStorm: secure connections to multiple servers

phil++phil++ Member Philip KovacsOrganization: University of PennsylvaniaProject: Ice Storm Evaluation
I have a scenario in which a single (IceStorm publishing) application must make secure connections to several servers simultaneously. Each server will present its certificate for verification with the client and, in turn, the client must present a client certificate for verification at the server. Fine.

If each server requires clients to present a certificate issued by its private CA, and that CA shares no trust with the other servers, I would have a problem, yes? I would not be able to successfully negotiate a secure connection with more than one server?

    Each communicator (and by consequence, each proxy created by that communicator) only has a single a identity. If you need multiple identities in a single process, you can do this by creating multiple communicators.
