Sun's Java documentation does provide information on importing
certificates so the HTTPS handler can verify server certificates.

Basically, you need to register the server's public certificate to
the JRE you are using. The "keytool" program for can be used
to do this.

The alternative is to write your own connection handler so all
certificates are trusted, but this requires knowledge of Java
programming and the ability to invoke XEP via Java API
(but system properties may be able to be used to register
your handler so XEP can still be called via command-line).
