Chapter 8. Online Certificate Status Manager: Verifying Certificate Status

This chapter describes how to perform Online Certificate Status Manager (OCSP) agent tasks, such as identifying a CA to the Online Certificate Status Manager and adding a CRL to the Online Certificate Status Manager's internal database. This service is available only when the Online Certificate Status Manager subsystem is installed. The Online Certificate Status Manager agent services page allows authorized agents to accomplish these tasks.

8.1. Listing CAs Identified by the Online Certificate Status Manager

The Online Certificate Status Manager can be configured to receive CRLs from multiple Certificate Managers. Each Certificate Manager that can publish CRLs to the Online Certificate Status Manager must have its CA signing certificate stored in the internal database of the Online Certificate Status Manager. For instructions, see Section 8.2, “Identifying a CA to the Online Certificate Status Manager”.
The list of Certificate Managers currently recognized by the Online Certificate Status Manager can be viewed at any time. To see the list of Certificate Managers:
  1. Open the Online Certificate Status Manager agent services page.
  2. In the left frame, click List Certificate Authorities.
