Roumen,

one last thing, what exactly does MandatoryCRL option sets?

Since when it is set to no, the ssh_crl.pem does get checked whether the
cert is revoked or not.
However, when I set it to yes, I get the following error

I get an error code 3, like this
Jan 17 14:46:12 pingo sshd[25026]: debug3: key_match:found matching
certificate

When I use openssl verify -crl_check everything is fine.
