Is it possible to setup the SSL bits on the client and server side to perform certificate authentication? I expect that you probably do server checks by default (though I have not actually looked or tried yet), but what about client auth? I am looking to get back on SwiftMQ now that there is XA/ASF support, but I am unsure based on the docs and available FAQs if client auth is possible. We are currently using SSL certificates and a custom CA to verify a connecting clients authenticiy, which will be difficult (and undesirable) to change. Thanks, --jason    More>>

Currently, SwiftMQ uses anonymous certs. The next release will support custom certs with client and server authentication. If you need it now, I can send you a patch containing the new JSSESocketFactory.
