SecureSocket with client authentification (AIR) ?

Hi,

I'm trying to establish a secured TCP connection with a symmetric TLS authentication (two way authentication).

I can connect with success to the server with SecureSocket if the client authentification is disabled but I don't know where to set my public/private key (in p12 format) on the Adobe AIR client side to make the connection successfull with client authentification enable.

As mentionned on this page : Using TLS Client Authentication with AIR Applications

I tried on Android and Windows platform. I installed my client certificate to the respective trustsores on each platform.

If I issue an request from a browser to the server from those platforms, I'm succesfully connected and authenticated (of course my server doesn't "understand" HTTP as it's a TCP server using a propretary protocol, but at least the TLS mechanism works).

Is client authentication even supported for SecureSocket, I would be surprised if not as it seems to be such a basic thing ?

Regards,

Michel
