Johanna Amann commented on BIT-1332:

Actually - merge this after all, the additional change I want to do is more complicated, might not make it into 2.4 and only adds additional functionality (not a bug fix).

> Please merge topic/johanna/cert-validation. This is an update to the script used to validate certificates in SSL/TLS connections. Description from main commit:
> {quote}
>     Update certificate validation script - new version will cache valid
>     intermediate chains that it encounters on the wire and use those to try
>     to validate chains that might be missing intermediate certificates.
>     This vastly improves the number of certificates that Bro can validate.
>     The only drawback is that now validation behavior is not entirely
>     predictable anymore - the certificate of a server can fail to validate
>     when Bro just started up (due to the intermediate missing), and succeed
>     later, when the intermediate can be found in the cache.
>     Has been tested on big-ish clusters and should not introduce any
>     performance problems.
