Securing Broker Server Using CRL
Configuring Certificate Revocation Checking
Configuring CRL Checking For the Entire Certificate Chain
A certificate revocation list (CRL) is a list of certificates (or more specifically, a list of serial numbers for certificates) that are revoked by a certification authority (CA) and are no longer valid. A CRL provides increased security because it provides a mechanism for protecting against certificates that are compromised. The implementation of SSL with Broker Server supports the checking of certificates against the CRL.
Note:Broker supports certificate revocation checking only on the server side.
