After updating to OS X 10.5.7, I started to get messages, from Little Snitch (LS), stating that "ocspd" wants to connect to using TCP Port 80. As I was somewhat confused by this request, I did a quick search, and found out that the OS is checking to see if the the root certificates have been revoked. Is this accurate? Also, based on the information I found, I created a rule to allow this connection FOREVER. Comments please.

What I find strange is that tonight, I started to get a message from LS regarding "ocspd" but this time it wants to connect to "" (also using TCP 80). The reverse DNS name is "". What is this connection alert coming from? If Apple has created a method to check for revoked certs, why is "ocspd" attempting to connect to "" at Any information on this would be greatly appreciated.
