About OCSP Auth
An OCSP Auth action retrieves the revocation status of an X.509 certificate by sending the certificate information to a remote Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) responder. Typically, an OCSP Auth action follows an action that receives an X.509 certificate. Either a Client Cert Inspection or On-Demand Cert Auth action can receive the X.509 certificate from a user. Either action populates session variables with data that OCSP Auth uses. Similarly, a Machine Cert Auth action can receive an X.509 certificate from a machine and populate session variables.
A CRLDP Auth action is valid for use in a per-request policy subroutine when placed after an On-Demand Cert Auth action.
An OCSP Auth action provides these configuration elements and options:
- OCSP Responder
- Specifies the OCSP Responder AAA configuration object, defined in the Access Policy AAA servers area of the Configuration utility.
- Certificate Type
- Specifies the expected type of certificate:UserorMachine.
