I don't think it is possible to do this on a Non-Apple-OS since there are
also close source parts of the push service (apsd) that also includes
challenge-response to apple servers.

There are libraries like Net::APNS or PyAPNS that use the same service
(gateway.push.apple.com) but these are intended for this purpose.

I tried to use these libraries with certificates extracted from OS X Server
without success.
