Err, why? If you're using certificate validation (server and/or client
side) then you *should* be able to retrieve all information you need
from whatever client you're using. However, I could well believe that if
this information is only available via the socket then you'll have a
hard time digging that out.

What's your use case though - are you trying to identify the server's
identity by checking some header in messages received from the server?
Surely the "right" solution to identity is to restrict the certificate
the client accepts from the server when the connection is established,

That's a good idea. I'll file a bug for that.
