Out of curiosity, what software is checking OCSP for a pre-cert and why? Why does any software need the OCSP status of a pre-cert when it doesn't have the corresponding final cert? _______________________________________________ dev-security-policy mailing list email@example.com https://lists.mozilla.org/listinfo/dev-security-policy
