Enable SSL auth as last-ditch auth for the HTCondor-CE


There's no current way to READ from a HTCondor-CE with encryption and without some sort of client credential.

Let's add SSL auth to the authentication mechanisms for the CE. Since it allows anonymous auth, it'll often succeed - meaning it should go last on the list.

Per Brian’s request in the PR, I’ve also added SSL to the end of the SchedD/Collector WRITE authN list. This will allow CE admins to add SSL mappings for job submission:

Review done – appears to do as requested.

What version will this be released in (I was guessing 5.1.0…)? And is there any chance the hosted CEs can run that version?

Time remaining
