+ CRL
+ Definition from :rfc:`5280`:
+
+ X.509 defines one method of certificate revocation. This method
+ involves each CA periodically issuing a signed data structure called
+ a certificate revocation list (CRL). A CRL is a time-stamped list
+ identifying revoked certificates that is signed by a CA or CRL
+ issuer and made freely available in a public repository. Each
+ revoked certificate is identified in a CRL by its certificate serial
+ number. \ No newline at end of file
