This feature is no longer necessary now that we do hostname authentication, and 
providing it would require exposing a lot of the low level details of the 
internal SSL implementation. For these reasons I'm going to close this as won't

> Currently, the SSL implementation merely verifies that the certificate 
> supplied by the remote is signed by the configured CA.  There is no way to 
> extract information from that certificate - such as the CN, subject, etc.
> It would be useful to provide an accessor api to get at the contents of the 
> certificate.  This could be used by the application to, for example, verify 
> the CN and decide whether or not to close the connection.
