Can you please document the exact certificates (that is, file names with file 
format and by who they should be signed) that need to be in place on server and 
client to setup a working connection, such that
  WARNING: Exception thrown: ConnectionException(Conn_TLSHandshakeFailed

is not displayed in the logs?

There are some scripts which do part of this now, but things would be much 
easier to understand if it was documented and instead of an exception like that, 
it would output error messages that are a bit more intelligible (cf., "You are 
sending a certificate signed by organization X, but we require a certificate 
signed by organization Y. ").

For example the scripts use 2048 bits keys now and a particular key type, but 
some users might want to change that.
