WG145 A22 - The private web server must use an approved DoD certificate validation process.


Without the use of a certificate validation process, the site is vulnerable to accepting certificates that have expired or have been revoked. This would allow unauthorized individuals access to the web server. This also defeats the purpose of the multi-factor authentication provided by the PKI process.

NOTE: Nessus has not performed this check. Please review the benchmark to ensure target compliance.


Configure DoD Private Web Servers to conduct certificate revocation checking utilizing certificate revocation lists (CRLs) or Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP).
