  Although I'm not 100% sure that I have understood what exactly you are 
doing .. you could have a look at this patch :

With this patch if the certificates have an OCSP field tomcat connects 
to the OCSP server and validates the certificate, so if there is an 
error tomcat just returns an error to the client .. and no further 
processing is carried.
