All certificates have specified lifetimes. However, in some situations, you might need to invalidate a certificate before it has reached the end of its lifetime. Creating policies for certificate revocation involves the following tasks:
Defining the conditions that warrant the revocation of a certificate.
Selecting a certificate revocation list publication location.
Selecting the type or types of CRLs that you intend to use.
Establishing schedules for the publication of CRLs.
Establishing a cached CRL validity period.
