Possible to ignore the Hostname In ValidateForSSL?

Hi Jesse,

Switching CheckCRL off is not recommended because it may cause problems with establishing certificate validity for a wide percentage of endpoints. A better option would be to set CheckCRL back to true and tune-up the validator with the following options instead:

- MandatoryCRLCheck = false,
- MandatoryOCSPCheck = false,
- MandatoryRevocationCheck = true.

While the above settings will allow validator ignore badly kept CRL endpoints, it will still be able to check certificate revocation via other means.

If you can't validate the certificate even after the above tune-up, some further settings might need to be tuned. There can be several reasons for the validator to not be able to validate a CRL properly, and we need to establish the exact reason that is taking place in your case.

I suggest that you create a detailed validation log and post it either here or to a Helpdesk ticket (if you prefer not to make it public). You can retrieve the log after validating the certificate via TElX509CertificateValidator.InternalLogger.Log.Text property.

Let me note, however, that assistance with validating of individual certificates is available when you have Premium support level.

If you are evaluating SecureBlackbox, you can purchase Premium support for some time on https://www.eldos.com/support/calc.php .

Also we have several articles, related to validation of certificates and to diagnostics of possible problems. The articles are:
1) "Validation of certificates in SecureBlackbox (mini-FAQ)" (https://www.eldos.com/security/articles/7545.php ),
2) "Diagnosing certificate chain validation errors when validating a certificate or signature with *AdES components" (https://www.eldos.com/security/articles/7639.php ),
3) "Additional tune-up of retrievers in TElX509CertificateValidator" (https://www.eldos.com/security/articles/8115.php )

You can use these articles for self-help.

Sincerely yours
Eugene Mayevski
