CERT_REVOCATION_STATUS structure

The CERT_REVOCATION_STATUS structure contains information on the revocation status of the certificate. It is passed to and returned by CertVerifyRevocation. On return from the function, it specifies the status of a revoked or unchecked context.

Syntax


typedef struct _CERT_REVOCATION_STATUS {
  DWORD cbSize;
  DWORD dwIndex;
  DWORD dwError;
  DWORD dwReason;
  BOOL  fHasFreshnessTime;
  DWORD dwFreshnessTime;
} CERT_REVOCATION_STATUS, *PCERT_REVOCATION_STATUS;

Members

cbSize

Size of this structure in bytes.

Upon input to CERT_REVOCATION_STATUS, cbSize must be set to a size greater than or equal to the size of a CERT_REVOCATION_STATUS structure. Otherwise, CERT_REVOCATION_STATUS returns FALSE and GetLastError returns E_INVALIDARG.

dwIndex

Specifies an index value for the rgpvContext array passed to CertVerifyRevocation. It is the index of the first context in that array that was revoked or that could not be checked for revocation. For information about the contexts that were not checked, CertVerifyRevocation is called again, specifying a rgpvContext array that contains the unchecked contexts from the original list.

dwError

Specifies the returned error status. This value matches the return value of GetLastError on return from the call to CertVerifyRevocation. For the list of these error values, see the table in the Return Values section of CertVerifyRevocation.

dwReason

Specifies the cause of the error. This member is set only if dwError is CRYPT_E_REVOKED. It contains a code that indicates why the context was revoked. It can be one of the following values.

ValueMeaning
CRL_REASON_UNSPECIFIED

No reason was specified for revocation.

CRL_REASON_KEY_COMPROMISE

It is known or suspected that the subject's private key or other aspects of the subject validated in the certificate are compromised.

CRL_REASON_CA_COMPROMISE

It is known or suspected that the CA's private key or other aspects of the CA validated in the certificate are compromised.

CRL_REASON_AFFILIATION_CHANGED

The subject's name or other information in the certificate has been modified but there is no cause to suspect that the private key has been compromised.

CRL_REASON_SUPERSEDED

The certificate has been superseded, but there is no cause to suspect that the private key has been compromised.

CRL_REASON_CESSATION_OF_OPERATION

The certificate is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was issued, but there is no cause to suspect that the private key has been compromised.

CRL_REASON_CERTIFICATE_HOLD

The certificate has been placed on hold.

 

fHasFreshnessTime

Depending on cbSize, this structure can contain this member. If this member is TRUE, the revocation freshness time returned by dwFreshnessTime is valid.

dwFreshnessTime

Depending on cbSize, this structure can contain this member. If present, this member gives the time in seconds between the current time and when the CRL was published.
