Using ssl_crl with CRLs (plural)

Hi there,

I am trying to setup a x509 client cert check with Nginx. Everything
is running smoothly until I add the ssl_crl directive.

Unfortunately, my CA happens to release its CRLs under several
files… for historic reasons from what I heard.

With Apache/mod_ssl; the SSLCARevocationFile directive sets a
concatenated PEM-encoded CA CRLs, even if concatenated files are not
fully compliant with the CRL logic.

Is it something that might be setup with nginx ? The ability to setup
a list of the individual files somewhere in the nginx configuration
would be optimal.

Thanks,

Multiple PEM-encoded CRLs concatenated into a single file should
work fine. Note that both Apache/mod_ssl and nginx rely on
OpenSSL to load CRL files, and handling is more or less identical.
