Subject Re: [users@httpd] SSL - How client certificates are verified?
Date Sun, 23 Aug 2015 15:51:02 GMT
Hello, what is your scenario? If you issue (sign) client certificates 
yourself, Apache can correctly verify it against local CRL (certificate 
revocation list) file (server restart may be required after file 
update). There's information in the net concerning OCSP support for 
client authentication in newer versions of Apache (google 
SSLOCSPEnable), but I can see no real use for it save for some very 
complicated systems.


With Best Regards,
Marat Khalili
