invalidation of a certificate.
A certificate may be revoked for
any reasons deemed acceptable by the CA, each of whom sets their own
policies for certificate revocation. Typical permissible reasons for
key revocation include:
- The subscriber has requested that it be revoked
- The subscriber informs the CA that the public/private
key has been compromised
- The subscriber has not accepted the certificate
within the required acceptance period after it has been issued
Once revoked, a certificates
information is no longer considered valid.
