This should be part of the refactor as well.

The  certificate check algorithm should not be in TCPSlaveBase. It makes it 
impossible to share it with applications wanting an SSL stream socket. I ran 
into this writing the SSL layer for Kopete, and ended up just copying most of 
the code.

As I understand it though, this issue will be resolve when Thiago writes his 
new KNetwork SSL socket.
