Thursday, September 22, 2016 introduces CRL for CA issuing S/MIME certificates received an update which introduces CRL support for Fossa.Me Authority F2 Certification Authority. CRL (or Certificate Revocation List) is a list of revoked certificates (or more precisely their serial numbers), users presenting those certificates (had been revoked earlier) are no longer trusted.

Fossa.Me Authority F2 implements CRL in accordance to RFC 5280. The CRL is issued every hour. Also provides a way for authorized and authenticated user to revoke one of his/her own certificates on the Web page.

As well, now our new users will receive an e-mail containing details about issued certificate and its validity dates.
