Hi Richard, it's client side.
The project is a messaging app, principally for mobile. SSL/TLS
certificates issued with client software enable servers to know that the
connection is allowed at a network level before any user authentication.
In the early stages of development it was simple enough for a LC messaging
server to dismiss connections which didn't come from an accepted client and
didn't meet the specification. Once I moved to an industry standard server
then the connections have to be encrypted with certificates at both ends.
