DoD PKI Management Help

Special Note

Due to improper revocation checking configurations, the DoD PKI Network Infrastructure is being stressed during peak times due to high numbers of customer requests for CRLs of significant size from GDS. These requests are automatically generated during certificate validation. Currently there are 37 Certificate Authorities (CA’s) issuing CRLs, which when combined are over 100MB in size. Due to the demands of CRL based certificate validation, it is impractical for every application to download a CRL every time a certificate is presented. A hierarchical approach is needed where some services are provided by the DoD Public Key Infrastructure, some services by the DoD Components infrastructure and some services by the Local Area Network.

Note: The CA listing and the CRLs are refreshed automatically. By default this refresh is performed every 15 minutes but may be sooner or later depending on volatility.
