I need to put the CN on the cert into a variable; it's essentially an authenticated string the server knows to be valid (since it has been signed).
I'd like to route messages to a directory based on the string or otherwise send them to a fallback directory on a failed cert.

If it's using a signed cert then what do you need to put into the filter? You mean a list of allowed peers? If so then you could either try to piggyback on the IpFilter and make it accept hostnames, or yes add another filter config option such as hostFilter.

I’m trying to add in the feature to expose the client’s peer cert into AvroSource:
Per the bug request I filed in October:
Any ideas on how I might expose the data — it’s just a string for the CN from the peer cert.
I’m having a difficult time figuring out how to expose this connection state information so that Flume’s configuration magic can take hold from there.
It seems a little like I need to create yet-another-filter, kind of like IpFilter.
The CN info may be used to route to a particular directory (in an HDFS sink) and/or set a header for the AvroEvent, or possibly just validate a
header (header.CN == ssl peer CN or FAIL).
