#1236 new Enhancement

SecureIRC using client SSL certificate

Reported by: bbarrera Owned by: timothy
Component: Chat Core (IRC) Version: 2.1 (Mac)
Severity: Normal Keywords:


It is not always convenient to use ssh port forwarding to workaround an IRC server that only allows connections using client SSL certificate. I don't believe this feature is currently available in Colloquy, and therefore request client SSL certificate support.

Regarding possible OS X built-in support... In Leopard the Keychain allows right-clicking a certificate and "New Certificate Preference..." to create an Identity Preference item in the Keychain. This allows the user to force Safari to use any client certificate with a particular website. That said this feature doesn't appear to be fully implemented in Leopard as I haven't figured out how to setup a wildcard to cover an entire website, and I haven't found much on the Internet although I haven't checked Apple's Developer documentation yet.

+1, this would still be a very useful feature to have. Ticket #3295 seems like a dup of this one.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
