validation service to support demanding business continuity needs
to fulfil all your certificate validation needs
– ADSS OCSP Server supports multiple CAs and validation policies. Additionally, it supports role-based operator access controls and provides high availability configurations. OCSP server certificates can be issued using a built-in CA and auto renewed.
– Options for whitelist checking is available using a full CA certificate table. Blacklist checking is also available using a Certificate Revocation List (CRL) table with instant revocation by the OCSP server admin.
– ADSS OCSP Server fully complies with international standards, including:
ADSS OCSP Server forms part of the ADSS PKI Server Common Criteria certification to EAL 4 against the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) Protection Profile for Certification Authorities.
Ascertia’s products and solutions are used extensively by governments, leading financial institutions, global telcos and thousands of major corporations and SMEs around the world.
An OCSP request is sent through to the ADSS OCSP Server. The server supports RFC 6960 and RFC 5019 validation services. It provides support for multiple CAs with unique, individual validation policies.
The OCSP request checks the specific certificate serial number with a trusted CA. Once checked, an OCSP response is sent back in real time with a response of ‘good’, ‘revoked’ or ‘unknown’.

Ascertia’s ADSS OCSP Server meets the following certifications and standards:
Initial product installation and setup is easy using a wizard. Operators are guided on how to configure the database, main operator account, trust models and any Hardware Security Module (HSM) details. It also helps setup CAs, their validation policies, CRL monitoring and event reporting.
View our datasheet for more in-depth information on this.
Secure web-based management and advanced management reporting are provided as standard. These features include security configuration options and detailed reporting.
Detailed, role-based access controls ensure staff have access to what they need and nothing else.
Event and transaction logs are created within the ADSS OCSP Server console. They can be used to create usage reports and identify high demand users, certificates or IP addresses.
Ascertia’s ADSS OCSP Server has been designed to handle high availability and offers significant load capacity.
Thanks to its distributed architecture, core services can be split. This process enables separate back-end servers to process CRLs while front-end servers handle requests and responses. Customers can also use the ADSS OCSP Gateway to protect multi-tier data centres.
