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.
Changed the QA contact to Bishakha.
Dupe of bug 48597?
Bug 48597 is not a duplicate of this bug but rather a PSM bug that depends on this NSS bug.
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 205406.
FYI, the offline cache could use code from the simpler online cache, so I'm adding a dependency to bug 205406.
This bug is simply a dupe of 48597. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 48597 ***
