I just was wondering about this term, that I came by just recently, "certificate stapling?" What is it and how does this actually work??? Thank you so much for your time and help in this matter..
Here's a definition from a Certificate Authority.
"Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) stapling, also known as the TLS Certificate Status Request extension, is an internet standard that allows to check the validity status of X.509 digital certificates. OCSP stapling allows a web server to obtain a digitally signed and time-stamped OCSP response from the OCSP responder operated by the CA that issued the server certificate. The OCSP responder gives a ‘valid’ or ‘revoked’ status to the web browser, communicating to the browser about the validity status of the SSL certificate. If the web browser receives a “revoked” message, then it gives a warning to the users so that they don’t exchange confidential information with that website."
Thank you so much for helping me with this question.
