Description Javier Delgadillo 2001-07-19 14:19:14 PDT
Customers have asked for PSM to provide an off-line cache of OCSP responses. 
PSM can't do that until NSS provides caching of OCSP responses.

Assigned the RFE to Julien.

Dupe of bug 48597?
Comment 4 Wan-Teh Chang 2002-10-24 10:32:57 PDT
Bug 48597 is not a duplicate of this bug but
rather a PSM bug that depends on this NSS bug.
Comment 5 Wan-Teh Chang 2003-05-12 14:48:06 PDT
An offline cache requires storing the OCSP responses in
persistent storage.  The design and implementation of
the persistence is complicated.  A simpler OCSP cache
that can't be used offline or across application sessions
is still useful because it could improve performance by
reducing the number of OCSP responses that need to go
to the network.  At the NSS OCSP meeting on May 1, we
decided that the simpler, non-offline OCSP cache could
be implemented first, and so it has been filed as bug
Comment 6 Julien Pierre 2003-09-29 17:25:13 PDT
FYI, the offline cache could use code from the simpler online cache, so I'm
adding a dependency to bug 205406.
