I'm developing client-server app and trying to secure the connection. I'm using openfire as the server. I don't want any other jabber-clients to connect to it except mine.

I want to make it by using SSL client certificates ... I would integrate it in my client application, import it into openfire and check it on every connection attempt.

Does anybody had experience securing openfire server in such way? I would like to know how to generate certs (cert type), import it in openfire (still can't import anything!) and use it on the client side.

This should probably have been asked on since it is a software development question. – Caleb Apr 14 '11 at 7:45
