The Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) allows revocation information
to be conveyed as part of the SignedData, EnvelopedData,
AuthenticatedData, and AuthEnvelopedData content types.  The
preferred format for revocation information is the Certificate
Revocation List (CRL), but an extension mechanism supports other
revocation information formats.  This document defines two additional
revocation information formats for Online Certificate Status Protocol
(OCSP) responses and Server-Based Certificate Validation Protocol
(SCVP) requests and responses.  [STANDARDS TRACK]

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
Official Protocol Standards (STD 1) for the standardization state and
status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
