Certificate Revocation List (CRL) is a list of certificates (or more specifically, a list of serial numbers for certificates) that have been revoked. Entities that present any revoked certificates should not be trusted.

The Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) is an Internet protocol used for obtaining the revocation status of an X.509 digital certificate. OCSP is described in RFC 6960 and is on the internet standards track.
