We should be able to associate a client certificate (chain) and private key with our IRC connections. IRC bouncers such as ZNC allow you to use certificates to log into your bouncer (by supplying your bouncer username + your certificate as the password). Some IRC networks (such as freenode) also recognize client certificates for things such as signing into your nickname.
We could upload our certificates to the app in iTunes by clicking on our device, going to the Apps tab, scrolling down to File Sharing, clicking on Colloquy, and adding documents to Colloquy. Not sure about naming conventions.. Maybe something like "clientcert-1.pem" for the certificate chain and "clientcert-1.key" for the key and so on and so forth.
