Traditionally, revocation has been implemented by publishing Certificate Revocation Lists (CRLs). Practical and security issues can arise due to the size of the CRLs and the delay in updating relying parties. To address this, the Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) was developed to provide real-time certificate status information, for the required certificates only.
The Cryptomathic OCSP Responder delivers OCSP services to the most demanding applications. It combines best-in-class security with high performance and availability, whilst integrating seamlessly with new or existing PKI deployments.
