Title: A More Efficient Use of Δ-CRLs
Published: May 01, 2000
Abstract: Δ-Certificate revocation lists (delta-CRLs) were designed to provide a more efficient way to distribute certificate status information. However, as this paper shows, in some environments, if delta-CRLs are used as was originally intended, the benefits of using delta-CRLs will be minimal if delta-CRLs are used as was originally intended. This paper provides an analysis of delta-CRLs that demonstrates the problems associated with issuing delta-CRLs in the traditional manner. A new, more efficient technique for issuing delta-CRLs, is presented.
