They should work with 0.9.7d. IIRC that was the version I used when
implementing CRL support.
Note: As stated in the man-pages (ldap.conf(5) and slapd.conf(5)),
want to use CRLs you have to specify a CACERTDIR. That directory
has to be
correctly hashed (using c_rehash).
I don't use CACERTDIR, I put the CRL in the CA certificate.
That works, but there's a maintenance problem. Our CRLs expire, fairly
quickly, and that breaks certificate verification, so once we have a
we have to keep it up to date whether we care about it or not. There
doesn't seem to be any way to reload a CRL (OpenSSL bug 1424, Nov 8
so we have to restart slapd for each update. Does the CACERTDIR
avoid this problem?
