Dynamic ssl certificate ? (wildcard+ multiple different certs)

Here is my current conf 

server {
		listen   443;
		server_name ~^(.*)\.sub\.domain\.com$

		ssl    on;
		ssl_certificate    $cookie_ident/$1.crt; 
		ssl_certificate_key    $cookie_ident/$1.key;
		server_tokens off;
		ssl_protocols TLSv1.2 TLSv1.1 TLSv1 SSLv3;
		ssl_prefer_server_ciphers on;
		ssl_session_timeout 5m;
		ssl_session_cache builtin:1000 shared:SSL:10m;


		autoindex off;
		root /upla/http/www.domain.com;
		port_in_redirect off;
		expires 10s;
		#add_header Cache-Control "no-cache,no-store";
		#expires max;
        add_header Pragma public;
        add_header Cache-Control "public";
		location / {
			try_files $uri /$request_uri =404;



I would like to be able to "load" the right cert according to the cookie set
and request uri.

A sort of dynamic setting.

But of course, when I start nginx, it complains : 
SSL: error:02001002:system library:fopen:No such file or directory:

Perfectly normal since $cookie_ident is empty and no subdomain has been

So, what is the workaround I could use to avoid creating one file per new
(self-signed)certificate issued ?

I cannot use only one certificate for all since I have to be able to revoke
the certs with granularity.

How should I make it work ?
