I don't know neither... feel free to try and let us know.

FWIW, I don't consider SSL client certificates a feasible solution to
consolidate Sugar Labs sign-on. While some of us may take advantage of
it, many users have trouble figuring out how to generate certificates
and install them in their browsers.

If we could hook up as many services as possible to a central
authentication service such as CAS or OpenID, this in turn could offer a
number of login methods, including passwords and perhaps also SSL
