    Dear IBM Development,

    We are using only IBM Security Directory Server with serverClientAuth settings. So, the ISDS requires to client send trusted client certificate and valid username/password to open secure (TLS) connection. Don't hesitate to contact me if you need any further information.

    Best regards,

    Could you please describe more your security requirements?
    Are you using only IBM Security Directory Server or there are other Directory Servers in your environment?
