It is not feasible to correct this issue with a code change as client SSL certificates need to be created in order to support client authentication. The installation documentation notes how to mitigate this through the creation of certificates to support SSL authentication. This mitigation is the best way to correct this issue and, as a result, we will not be releasing any patches to correct the issue.
