In our constant endeavor to provide a better experience for our customers, we are in the process of updating our Certificate Revocation List (CRL) and Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) infrastructure.

The upgrade for CRL lists has been transitioned and implemented on May 06, 2013. With the OCSP list undergoing an upgrade by January 13, 2014.

Here’s how you’ll benefit

  • Faster response time – CRL/OCSP requests will be served from the closest location to the user with dramatically improved average response times.
  • 100+ additional new sites – more sites handling CRL/OCSP requests mean improved availability and reliability all over the globe.

More information and best practices for updating any firewall policies and/or access control devices for this transition for both CRL and OCSP lists can be found referencing our knowledge base articles below.
