Delegated Path Validation

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Delegated Path Validation (DPV) is a method for offloading to a trusted server the work involved in validating a public key certificate.

Combining certificate information supplied by the DPV client with certificate path and revocation status information obtained by itself, a DPV server is able to apply complex validation policies that are prohibitive for each client to perform.

The requirements for DPV are described in RFC 3379.
