Description

    This property specifies the format of access information (in form of Object Identifier). The only AccessMethod, defined by RFC 2459, is caIssuers. The following paragraph is taken from RFC 2459 (Housley, et. al.), part 4.2.2.1:

    «This access method is used when the additional information lists CAs that have issued certificates superior to the CA that issued the certificate containing this extension. The referenced CA Issuers description is intended to aid certificate users in the selection of a certification path that terminates at a point trusted by the certificate user. »


    Some implementations may support other (custom) access methods. One of them is id-ad-ocsp (OID 1.3.6.1.5.5.7.48.1).
