SSL/TLS and Secure Shell connections can be configured to authenticate hosts using digital certificates. To ensure that certificates have not been revoked, you can configure InfoConnect to check for certificate revocation using CRLs or using an OCSP responder.
When CRL checking is enabled, InfoConnect always checks for CRLs in any location specified in the CRL Distribution Point (CDP) field of the certificate. In addition, InfoConnect can also be configured to check for CRLs located in an LDAP directory or using an OCSP responder.
InfoConnect's default value for certificate revocation checking is based on your current system setting. If your system is configured to do CRL checking, InfoConnect sessions will check for certificate revocation using CRLs by default.
NOTE:When InfoConnect is running in DOD PKI mode, certificate revocation is always enabled and cannot be disabled.
