Ah, OK. Thanks.

I have a follow up question about "This Update" in the OCSP Response Data.

The config looks like this:

SSLStaplingCache shmcb:/run/httpd/ssl_stapling(32768)

The contents of /run/ doesn't persist over reboot. Unless I
misunderstand what anonymous shared memory is then that doesn't
persist over reboot. But if I connect to port 443 and look at the OCSP
Response Data I see

    This Update: Aug 16 00:58:00 2017 GMT

Then I reboot the server, and connect to port 443 again and I see.

    This Update: Aug 16 00:58:00 2017 GMT

When the cache doesn't persist over reboot, how is that date/time the
same after reboot?

Running httpd with "LogLevel debug" I see this appear in the log

[Wed Aug 16 13:38:23.590925 2017] [ssl:debug] [pid 1418:tid
140561596020480] ssl_util_ocsp.c(79): [client nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn:37904]
AH01973: connecting to OCSP responder ''

the first (and only first) time I connect to port 443 after reboot.

Looking at I see

"OCSP responders MAY pre-produce signed responses specifying the
status of certificates at a specified time. The time at which the
status was known to be correct SHALL be reflected in the thisUpdate
field of the response."

Could it be that pre-produced a response for my
certificate at "Aug 16 00:58:00 2017 GMT" and is handing that out to
my instance of httpd?
