Summary0000175: We need a way to shutdown the website
DescriptionIn case of emergency, we need the possibility to stop the issueing of new certificates, and the issueing of web-of-trust points, to make sure that no bad things can happen.
On the other hand, revocation services need to continue being operated properly.
Additional InformationI created a patch that does the job. It adds a new shutdown.php, which is called from all affected places, which has a single switch to shutdown the functions. Change the if(0) to if(1), and the functions are offline.

At the moment, I added the shutdown include on all entry points of the web-based functions.
The API is NOT affected yet. If we want to shut that down too, those functions have to be added.
Also the operation parts are NOT affected yet. So it is still possible to circumvent the patch, if someone knows how to do it.
TagsNo tags attached.
