Abstract

This document provides a specification how to publish and retrieve X.509 certificates and certificate revocation lists (CRLs). In the proposed method, the World Wide Web (WWW) is used for securely distributing certificates across a firewall in both human and machine readable syntax. A various certificate concerning information that includes certificates, CRLs, and certification authority (CA) policy are retrieved from an integrated single authority access point specified in X.509 version 3 extensions. The information access point accepts certification and revocation requests in the uniform access method based on the standard WWW.
