Subject: RE: [id-cloud] Discussion Topic - Authentication

We were discussing gaps in specifications and I mentioned mini CRLs that are
provided by a couple of vendors to support X.509 certificate validation.
There is no specification that I am aware of for mini CRLs. When CRLs are
large and/or bandwidth or memory is a issue such as downloading CRLs over
wireless to handheld devices, mini CRLs have their place. We have OCSP and
SCVP for validating small groups of certificates at a time. The systems that
sign the OCSP/SCVP responses based on a CRL are important in DR and COOP
scenarios since they can keep responding after a CRL has expired. There is a
pattern on SOAPatterns.org that further illustrates the COOP point:
