OCSP [RFC2560] establishes the Internet standard for online certificate status. The baseline response type defined in [RFC2560] supports acquisition of the revocation state of a certificate. This specification builds on the OCSP framework's extensibility by defining an Internet-standard extension to OCSP that can be used to fully delegate all path validation processing to an OCSP server.
