I confirm that this works fine in 2.8.0. However, the user that is required
(which name is the DN) also allows to login without SSL.

One solution would be to generate long random passwords for these dummy
users indicating which DNs are allowed but this looks like bricolage. What
about using the (currently underused) tags for this purpose? We could
imagine an "ssl" tag meaning "this user can only login via SSL"...
