Why do I need stapled?

stapled is meant to be a helper daemon for HAProxy which doesn’t do OCSP stapling out of the box. However HAProxy can serve staple files if they are place in the certificate directory, which is what we use to our benefit.

You may also be able to use stapled for any other proxy that supports serving .ocsp files but out of the box it will only save those files and optionally inform a running HAProxy instance of them.
