            Bug ID: 145886
           Summary: Make -[WKWebView _certificateChain] public.
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Hardware: iOS
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKit2
          Assignee: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
          Reporter: eugenebut at chromium.org

Making _certificateChain API public will simplify implementation of security UI (https lock) for web browsers.

In WebKit nightly build webView:didReceiveAuthenticationChallenge:completionHandler: provides certs chain.
However it is not called on every navigation. It means that if app needs to know
the certs of current page it has to maintain persistent cache: host-name: cert-chain.

The certs are already cached by WebKit, so storing this cache twice is additional overhead.
