[botan-devel] Remote DoS/crash in TLS code

There is a ticket open for it
(http://bugs.randombit.net/show_bug.cgi?id=97), but I have done no
work on OCSP beyond scanning the RFC. It would obviously be useful
though, for both SSL and general X.509/PKI work. OCSP should be
relatively self-contained, so it could be a good candidate for being
developed as a seperate project and then merged in, if someone wants
to work on it (hint hint).

I suspect whatever time I have for botan in 2012 will be on TLS work
and on redesiging the X.509 path validation/certificate store
interfaces, so if I end up being the one to write the OCSP support it
will likely not happen until 2013.
