You can generate a certificate (and his private key) for every  
client, put the public cert in the CApath of the server, and set  
In every CApath you must have:
- the pub cert of the CA that issues the certs
- the pub cert of the OTHER hosts which you will establish a  
connection (so, in the server CApath you will find the client certs,  
and viceversa).
Then you do a c_rehash.

With this setup, i don't know if it will work with the ssl provided  
by the browser, or you must install stunnel also on the server side,  
but i think that accepting the cert on the browser will work for you.

Bye, dario.
