I am new to stunnel. My application listens on 6 socket ports. External
applications either dump data on these socket ports or send requests on
these socket ports to receive data. Thus, my application is a server and
external applications are clients. We got to authenticate these external
applications before accepting the requests/data. So I am planning to use
client certificate authentication of stunnel. In this case, should the
server have a certificate as well? Will the server be authenticated? Is
it necessary for all the external applications to be using the same
