Does anybody know a plugin that keeps track of the used certificates and CAs? I tried "certificate patrol" [1]. But I wasn't too happy...

I would like to get warnings, whenever a fingerprint changes. For example:

INFO: The certificate fingerprint has changed. The new certificate is signed by the same CA. Details... WARNING: The certificate fingerprint has changed. The new certificate is signed by a different CA. A possible MITM attack has been detected. Details...

So long,
