I might want to use A only when the cipher suite chosen in the SSL handshake is ...You can't. The cipher suite is chosen after the certificate.
I don't really see what the choice of certificate has to do with the choice of cipher suites. One is for authentication; the other is for encryption.
You are right. It doesn't make any sense to have that configurable anyway. I was just trying to recreate functionality of an overtly configurable application that had this functionality.
In some programs such as Apache HTTPD you can specify the certificate and the cipher suites at the same time, per Virtual Host or even per directory. But you can't make them interdependent.1 person found this helpful
