Summary0013611: App-openvpn provides no way of disabling certificates
DescriptionOpenVPN provides a certificate security model such that the server never looks at the client certificate or private key when authenticating. Some users disable user/pass access so OpenVPN can run as a service in Windows, so the client automatically connects to ClearOS when it boots up. In this condition, the only way to disable client access us to configure openvpn to use a CRL. ClearOS needs to provide support for this, both in the Certificates app so deleting a certificate makes an entry in the CRL, and in app-users so deleting a user deletes the certificates and creates the entry in the CRL. The basic clients.conf also needs modifying to use the CRL.

Since this requires a command line hack, set this to "feature".

Note: the "Certificate Manager" app already provides API hooks for revoking certificates. However, the user engine does not take advantage of this feature when a user is deleted.
