I previously asked a question how to download a file over https.  I was given 3 examples.

One example uses password authentication but not one shows how to use certificates.

First, isn't a certificate required with https?

Second, are there any examples how to use certificates if required?  For example, can I export  a web certificate from my browser and use that for LDAP authentication which is part of the framework?
