Does anyone know if Windows 7 contains an built-in OCSP (Online Certificate Status Protocol) client?

Internet Explorer 7 and above support OCSP, but only on Vista and Windows 7 (not xp).

If you turn the safe browing feature on that's kinda sort of a "OCSP client" but I think that's not what you're getting at...I'm guessing you want a tool you can type an address in and check only its certificate status?

The one I've used it Ascercia, but it's not a free tool.  YOu can see it here and they have a trial.

I also found that Firefox 3 and above and current versions of Google Chrome enable OCSP by default when dealing with signed certificates.  I have a feeling you're not able to customize which OCSP responder you're connecting too.  I'm sure Google has their own, not sure where Mozilla points to.
