This also solves your problem of having to give out a cert to each client as
both of these only require a server side cert. You could then purchase a
certificate from a trusted CA and that would already be in their browsers list
of Trusted CA's.

Here are a couple of howto's the first is for a Linux supplicant and the second
is for using a Windows supplicant. What's a supplicant? The client.



Hope that helps,
