Subversion authentication methods

Our Subversion repository is hosted by Atlassian OnDemand. Currently, we use usernames and passwords to check out and commit code. I would like to utilize an alternate authentication method, as I am setting up a Jenkins server that needs to check out the code periodically. I don't want to store a username and password in a plain text file on the Jenkins server because that's not a secure practice. I understand SSH public/private keys are not supported but are SSL certificates supported? How can I set up the Subversion repository to allow code checkouts without a username/password combination?

I'm afraid this is not possible in OnDemand. There's no way to modify the internal SVN repository to use SSH+SVN instead of the basic user authentication.

It already uses SSL by default, but you would to add an internal user and password to access it through Jenkins.
