Glossary Term:
Online Certificate Status Protocol

An Internet protocol used for access control by obtaining the revocation status of an X.509 digital certificate. Maintaining the security of a server and other network resources, OCSP largely supercedes the older Certificate Revocation List (CRL) scheme. OCSP products can receive FIPS 201 certification.
