What a great server  SHOULD do is:

  1. presents the lady with an exception message in a nice http page, explaining what went wrong
  2. on next connection the TLS layer should throw one of the exceptions for certificate errors

I wrote a little one page java server that does this

It turns out Safari does (did) properly react to this, so that it is possible to log out from Safari in TLS.

I think I reported a bug in chromium, though perhaps a new one should be opened there that gets to this issue more particularly.


It would be useful to test the other browsers on this.
