How do I have Firefox check for expired/revoked certificates?

Posted

The Heartbeat vulnerability fix requires servers update openssl, get a new certificate, and revoke the old certificate. To be sure a spoofed site isn't using the revoked certificate, I need Firefox to check for revoked certificates. How do I turn this revoked certificate checking on in Firefox?

hello eghuff, firefox should be set to check for revoked certificates by default, you can check that under firefox > options > advanced > certificates > validation.
