Well, sort of. Mine is a bit more complicated because it also works around the protocol error in RFC 2440 related to V4 key expiration (V4 key expiration time is not covered by certificates because it is only contained in the self signature, not in the key material, in contrast to V3 keys): If the key to be signed is a V4 key with an expiration time set, a V4 signature is made which expires at that time, too (or even earlier). -- Florian Weimer Florian.Weimer@RUS.Uni-Stuttgart.DE University of Stuttgart http://cert.uni-stuttgart.de/ RUS-CERT +49-711-685-5973/fax +49-711-685-5898
