      Description

      For production servers, basic authentication poses a security risk in that username/password gets persisted to a configuration file and/or must be entered as a command line argument. A better solution for production use of import/export would be certificate authentication.

      Presumably this would require:
        1. ability to enter client_cert and client_key params pointing to location of those items locally
        2. persist the path to the cert/key as part of the config file so it can be used by the verification tool or when import/export is re-run.
