      Description

      The SSL tab in the REST client step sets up a secure connection between the client and the server by specifying the truststore location and password.

      However, a trustStore contains only the certificates trusted by the client - the keyStore is for client authentication.

      In situations where the client only needs to authenticate itself, there should be an option to identify the keystore.

      For example, a passive web service does not need to verify it's identity to clients - only the clients needs to prove their identity to the server.
