Self signed cert or ca not installed on client but FTPS still works

                 Key: NET-448
             Project: Commons Net
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: FTP
    Affects Versions: 3.1, 2.0
         Environment: client: Windows SP sp4, jdk 1.6.0_24
server: Linux 2.6.32-220.4.2.el6.i686 running vsFTPd 2.2.2

            Reporter: Deepak Pant
            Priority: Trivial

I am using vsftpd ftp server on centos with our own self signed root ca certificate.

I have not installed the self signed root certificate on the client machine. Neither am I
setting the Trust Manager on the FTPSClient object, using X509TrustManager instance pointing
to my physical cert file.

But I am still able to use the FTPSClient bundled in any of the following jar file and send/receive
the files.
commons-net-2.0-jdk14.jar (from zehon)

I was expecting that I will have to either install the self signed root ca on the client machine
Or set Trust Manager etc.

Can you please explain the behavior?
