Ballot 106 – Extended Deadline to Prohibit OCSP “Good” Response for Non-Issued Certificates (Withdrawn)
Given that several CAs have notified the CA/Browser Forum that they will be unable to comply with the 1-August-2013 deadline by which OCSP responders MUST NOT respond with a “good” status for unissued certificates, and that a one-year extension of this deadline is an appropriate timeframe by which these CAs should be able to come into compliance;
EFFECTIVE RETROACTIVELY TO 1 AUGUST 2013,
The last sentence of Section 13.2.6 of the Baseline Requirements (Response for non-issued certificates) is hereby amended to read as follows:
“Effective 1 August 2014, OCSP responders MUST NOT respond with a “good” status for such certificates.”
