Yes, that's the sort of active revokation I'm looking for. Thanks for the suggestion. More difficult is the art of detecting that a connection should be torn down (because the connected user should no longer have access). For each existing connection, perhaps I'd need to see if a new connection with all the same parameters can currently be established. In a perfect world, I could test authorization and validity of the new connection without requiring the user's password. In other words, it would be helpful to test authorization without first having to authenticate. Is such a test possible?
