javax.security.cert.* shouldn't be that hard to implement. It's
basically two mostly abstract classes plus a handful of exceptions. And
it's been deprecated from the start: "New applications should not use
this package, but rather java.security.cert." ;)
javax.net.ssl.* is a different beast altogether. I'm afraid that there
is no free software implementation of this API, but I hope the Gnu
Crypto developers may know more. So I've cc:ed them in this mail.

The missing NIO stuff is being worked on by Guilhem and Michael Koch
