Re: [iaik-jce] [iaik-ssl] How to prevent storage of SSL session information?

The fact that you do not need to specify your certificate each time does
not mean that authentication is not performed. This is a feature of the
SSL protocol and not a bug.

I cannot say anything about JigsawSSL allowing access to pages configured
to require some other certificate. Note that we have stopped supporting
JigsawSSL half a year ago and that the project including source code was
put in the public domain.

One way to fix the problem would be to disable session caching on the
server, but that would mean that you would have to choose your client
certificate for every new TCP connection established, i.e. essentially
for each embedded image in an HTML page.
