The Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) allows revocation information
to be conveyed as part of the SignedData, EnvelopedData,
AuthenticatedData, and AuthEnvelopedData content types.  The
preferred format for revocation information is the Certificate
Revocation List (CRL), but an extension mechanism supports other
revocation information formats.  This document defines two additional
revocation information formats for Online Certificate Status Protocol
(OCSP) responses and Server-Based Certificate Validation Protocol
(SCVP) requests and responses.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
