I'm new to using SSL and would like to clarify a couple of things. My issue is a follows:
I'm creating a software that should implement a XML-RPC interface, which should be encrypted. The setup includes a server and some clients. Keyfiles can be assign to the clients as they're deployed. I've tried the following: http://code.google.com/p/qtxmlrpc/ and have gotten it to work just nicely. My issue is that SSL isn't implemented, but as it's based on QtTcpSocket I'd assume this can be fixed.
As the clients are "known", what would a natural authentication scenario look like, and what is required to implement such? Thank you!
