[stunnel-users] Distinguished Name (DN) is a cleartext network communication?

I am confused. Trying to use the DN as a kind of password replacement I saw
that the DN goes unencrypted through the network, while the traffic itself is
encrypted of cause. Analysing the network packages with wireshark I get this:
.....michael.renner at gmx.de0.."0
This is, more or less, the content of the DN. Is there a chance to encrypt
My setup should work, no matter if a client certificate exists or not (also
independent of the DN's content) . But the appliation behind stunnel (started
by stunnel using the 'exec' statement) may behave dependent on the DN!
