Hi Mike,
Thanks for your reply, however a CRL will only help if we find out  
about it.

We want to prevent it from happening of course, but we want to remove  
the incentive as well. With a CRL, there is a window of opportunity  
between the time the cert is stolen and when the theft is discovered.  
How can we close that window?
