OCSP [RFC2560] establishes the Internet standard for online certificate status. An OCSP path discovery responder is an enhanced OCSP responder that provides requestors with certification paths. The technological and geographic diversity of the sources of these data motivates existence of service that enables relying-party software to acquire certification path data from an OCSP server rather than replicate the same functionality. This specification establishes an Internet standard extension to OCSP to address this need.
