Summary0000407: Need to deal with passing away users
DescriptionWe'll need to deal with users passing away

We could add :
- a death flag when someone reports a user to be passed away. Each logging to the account will be logged and reported to the support@
- a DOPA field (Date of Passing Away) when CAcert has gotten a Death Certificate copy
- a mean for the admin to revoke the user certificates as/if stated in the users last wills.
Additional InformationRevocation of certificates after death may lead to some data,encrypted by that cert, to be unreadable. This may be a legal issue in some countries. Perhaps a flag notating the death of the user and preventing the user's account from issuing any more certificates.
TagsNo tags attached.

What about users that haven't passed away but stated that they wanted their certificates to be revoked (etc.) in their Living Will?

We need proper policy on the subject, then code that follows the policy. Please refer to the cacert-policy mailing list.
