'Authenticity' implies trusting the issuer of your server's certificate.

Is your server providing the certificate you expect?

  openssl s_client -connect < /dev/null >& out.pem

You can use openssl tools to shake out what's going on.

If your server is not serving the certificate you expect, then you
indeed have a jetty config problem.

If your server is indeed serving the certificate you expect, then
your config is OK, but now you get to track down what your SSL issue
is, and that's not specific to jetty.
