certificate login is optional.

You are quite right - revoked certificates can login.

The list software is currently using Apache 2.2.3 to get certificate information and its not until Apache 2.3 that OCSP is supported ( There are some CRL directives though it seem it required a fetch of the entire revoked certificate database which I'm not prepared to do quite now.

It is planned that future upgrades of this service will try to validate revoked certificates.

you inspired me - I'm most of the way through implemented OCSP checking. It will check X509 certificates and S/MIME signatures.
