The Server-Based Certificate Validation Protocol (SCVP) allows a
client to delegate certification path construction and certification
path validation to a server. The path construction or validation
(e.g., making sure that none of the certificates in the path are
revoked) is performed according to a validation policy, which contains
one or more trust anchors. It allows simplification of client
implementations and use of a set of predefined validation policies.
