Right now the directory as you know the ideal place to store X509
certificates. This is the only function we provide presently. As a thin
layer a CA can easily sit on top of the directory.

There's probably a schema or draft available to manage revocation lists in
the DIT. Besides this custom (extended) operations can be provided but the
only one we've experimented with is a create certificate function. Other
extension mechanisms are also available, like a specific protocol handler in
the network layer (MINA), that handles the network part of the CDP protocol,
and accesses the DIT to manage certificates.

Can you point me out some other Ldap implementation that offers this
functionalities. ??
We have a CA and we are searching the way of management the revocation
certificate list for the portal users of our system.
