4.5.6.1  Status Checking

Just as it’s generally unwise to trust the data in a revoked certificate, because it may or may not be valid, it’s unwise to trust the data in a suspended certificate.

This is another reason that a potential user should verify a certificate’s validity by status checking.

As mentioned previously, this entails checking against the CRL or OCSP (or any other mechanism used by the CA to validate its digital certificates). If it is temporarily impossible to check the validity, the user must make an informed choice about whether to accept the risk of using a certificate whose authenticity cannot be verified.
