Delegated Path Validation
|This article does not cite any sources. (February 2012) (Learn how and when to remove this template message)|
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.
