Erik,

I am happy to help craft or review additional exposition if that helps.

Subject: [x500standard] SV: Re: SV: [pkix] Indirect CRLs

Hi Santosh,

Try to imagine a guy that is completely new in PKI and pick-up X.509 or RFC
5280 to learn about it. Will he understand what an indirect CRL is by just
looking at some brief statements on an iCRL is.

8.5.2.2	CRL scope extension (deprecated) has the following statements:

–	simple CRLs that provide revocation information about certificates
issued by a single authority; 
–	indirect CRLs that provide revocation information about certificates
issued by multiple authorities;

It was a statement like this that made me wrongly to believe that it is only
an iCRL if there are certificate info from multiple authorities.

I also some comments on your other mail.

Regards,

Erik

Erik,

Look at Section 8.6.2.1 of X.509 and I quote the following: "The cRLIssuer
component identifies the authority that issues and signs the CRL. If this
component is absent, the CRL issuer name defaults to the certificate issuer
name."

Also see Section C.5.1.4 of X.509

Within X.509 there is not even a small paragraph introducing indirect CRLs
where such information could be introduced. Besides the brief definition,
iCRLs are mentioned the first time within the CRL scope extension (which is
deprecated).

Without doing the latter, the relying party will not be able to use the
indirect CRL to verify the revocation status of the certificate in the scope
of the indirect CRL.

Huh?  The latter comment has exactly nothing to do with indirect CRLs.
