Re: tlsverifyclient security implications
Thank you all for your responses.
You guys are awesome!
This is what I've been worried about with the encryption.

Sure, but encryption without authentication makes little sense, as you
don't know who you are securely speaking to: you can get an encrypted
link to a man in the middle.
