[AG-TECH] Certificates in AG3

For the 3.0 release, the VenueClient does not use certificates.  Like with secure
webpages (with an https url), the connection is secured by a certificate on the
server, and clients are unidentified.

The next release will integrate client-side certificates back in, making it 
but still not necessary to use a certificate in the VenueClient.

If you're having a problem in AG3 beta2 with the VenueManagement interface,
please describe it in detail in a bug report so we can try to reproduce the problem
and track it.  At this point, the only value in managing VenueServer authorization
is to control who can run VenueManagement.

However, I still want to restrict access to a test server based on client certificates. Can I still do this? If so, how? I have been playing around and I don't seem to be able to add new people or roles in the security tab of the Venue Management tool, or to see/modify actions for those. I am not using a server certificate at the moment, but I have requested it. I don't know whether that has something to do with it. Any help will be appreciated. Cheers,
