ocspd -- OCSP and CRL Daemon SYNOPSIS
ocspd performs caching and network fetching of Certificate Revocation Lists (CRLs) and Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) responses. It is used by Security.framework during certificate verification. Security.framework communicates with ocspd via a private RPC interface. When Security.framework determines that a CRL is needed, or that it needs to perform an OCSP transaction, it performs an RPC to ocspd which then examines its cache to see if the appropriate CRL or OCSP response exists and is still valid. If so, that entity is returned to Secu- rity.framework. If no entry is found in cache, ocspd obtains it from the network, saving the result in cache before returning it to Secu- rity.framework. This command is not intended to be invoked directly. FILES

dirmngr-client - Tool to access the Dirmngr services SYNOPSIS
dirmngr-client [options] [certfile|pattern] DESCRIPTION
The dirmngr-client is a simple tool to contact a running dirmngr and test whether a certificate has been revoked --- either by being listed in the corresponding CRL or by running the OCSP protocol. If no dirmngr is running, a new instances will be started but this is in general not a good idea due to the huge performance overhead. The usual way to run this tool is either: dirmngr-client acert or dirmngr-client <acert Where acert is one DER encoded (binary) X.509 certificates to be tested. RETURN VALUE
dirmngr-client returns these values: 0 The certificate under question is valid; i.e. there is a valid CRL available and it is not listed there or the OCSP request returned that that certificate is valid. 1 The certificate has been revoked 2 (and other values) There was a problem checking the revocation state of the certificate. A message to stderr has given more detailed information. Most likely this is due to a missing or expired CRL or due to a network problem. OPTIONS
dirmngr-client may be called with the following options: --version Print the program version and licensing information. Note that you cannot abbreviate this command. --help, -h Print a usage message summarizing the most useful command-line options. Note that you cannot abbreviate this command. --quiet, -q Make the output extra brief by suppressing any informational messages. -v --verbose Outputs additional information while running. You can increase the verbosity by giving several verbose commands to dirmngr, such as '-vv'. --pem Assume that the given certificate is in PEM (armored) format. --ocsp Do the check using the OCSP protocol and ignore any CRLs. --force-default-responder When checking using the OCSP protocol, force the use of the default OCSP responder. That is not to use the Reponder as given by the certificate. --ping Check whether the dirmngr daemon is up and running. --cache-cert Put the given certificate into the cache of a running dirmngr. This is mainly useful for debugging. --validate Validate the given certificate using dirmngr's internal validation code. This is mainly useful for debugging. --load-crl This command expects a list of filenames with DER encoded CRL files. With the option --url URLs are expected in place of filenames and they are loaded directly from the given location. All CRLs will be validated and then loaded into dirmngr's cache. --lookup Take the remaining arguments and run a lookup command on each of them. The results are Base-64 encoded outputs (without header lines). This may be used to retrieve certificates from a server. However the output format is not very well suited if more than one certificate is returned. --url -u Modify the lookup and load-crl commands to take an URL. --local -l Let the lookup command only search the local cache. --squid-mode Run dirmngr-client in a mode suitable as a helper program for Squid's external_acl_type option.
