I wish to use client side PKI certificates. I would like to generate\nsaid certificates myself since I know the people that will be\nauthenticating. My question is that when a certificate is generated by\nmyself and installed on the client machine does that machine make a\ncheck on the validity of that certificate only once (when it's imported)\nor every time that the certificate is used (every time the site is\naccessed? The reason I ask is I want to know whether I will need the\ngenerating server to be online 24/7.\n\nAny good online FAQ? I found a few very bried ones lacking in technical\ninformation such as handshakes etc. I dont mind finding out for myself\nif someone can point me in the general direction.\n\nThanks.
