ACEonCloud to support certificates for exposed REST APIs with bar applications

Integration Applications are developed with the ACE toolkit and are packaged as bar files. Some of those apps are exposed as REST APIs actually.

We'd like other options to be provided, one being with certificates, so that only clients with the right certificate can call the API
