 Checking Certificates ManuallyLocate this document in the navigation structure


You can also use the Certificate Revocation Check service to manually check individual certificates, for example, for certificates that exist outside the scope of the applications provided.


The certificate to check must either exist in the file system or in base64 format in the clipboard.


In the Certificate Revocation Check service, under Check Certificate:

  1. Select the profile to use for the check.

    This specifies which configuration is used, for example, the location of the CRL used for the check.

    If none of the profiles match the configuration necessary for the certificate you want to check, then create a new profile by selecting <New Profile> from the drop-down list.

    1. Enter a name for the profile in the New Profile field.

      The Certificate Revocation Check service creates a profile using the default values. By default, the profile is inactive.

    2. Activate this profile under Configuration  → Profiles.
  2. If you want to check the certificate for a specific date or time, then adjust the value accordingly in the Check Time field. Otherwise the current date and time are used.
  3. Select the location of the certificate in the Certificate Source field.
  4. Upload the certificate from the file system or paste it into the text field, depending on the option you chose.
  5. Choose Check.

    The result of the check is displayed.


    Choose Change or Reset to check a different certificate. By selecting Change, you can select a different certificate using the same profile.


    To keep the Certificate Revocation Check service's configuration transparent, we recommend removing any profiles after checking individual certificates.
