OCSP validation of SSL certificate (id-pkix-ocsp-nocheck)??

Q: OCSP validation of SSL certificate (id-pkix-ocsp-nocheck)??

I am conducting OCSP validation on SSL certificates in IE browser.
However, the results differ depending on whether or not id-pkix-ocsp-nocheck exists in the OCSP certificate.
Id-pkix-ocsp-nocheck in OCSP certificate exists: SSL certificate validation succeeded.
Id-pkix-ocsp-nocheck not present in OCSP certificate: OCSP Request 2 times request (verification failed).

Why do IE browsers differ in the validation of SSL certificates according to the id-pkix-ocsp-nocheck extension field in the OCSP certificate?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I was wondering if it's possible configure a Windows 2019 IIS v10 hosted Web Server to perform OCSP checking of client certificates that are used to authenticate?

It is my understanding that typically the Responder URL that the Web Server contacts in order to validate the client cert is extracted from the AIA attribute in the client certificate. But is it possible to override/supplement this with an additional Responder?

For instance, what if I set up an OCSP Responder in the same domain as the Web Server and associated its revocation configuration with the SUB CA binded to the IIS Site. Now if client certs come in for authentication  and have an unrelated OCSP Responder
in their AIA, can I somehow tell the Web Server to check also the aforementioned Responder that has been stood up in the domain?

A:OCSP Based Validation for Client Certificates Using Responder Defined by Web Server

Per a reply from Mark B. Cooper at PKI Solutions this is indeed possible. You must edit the following GPO in order to override the default behaviour of the web server which is to only check the Responder URL specified in the client certificates' AIA extension.
Default Domain Policy > Computer Configuration >  Policies > Windows Settings > Security Settings > expand Public Key Policies
Once a custom Responder is specified in the CA / SUB CA's revocation properties the above GPO will allow it to check that custom Responder URL first, then ocsp as defined in the AIA extension and then CRLs
Thanks Mark!

Their Answer:
Please accept our apologies for the technical issues.
In order to fix the issue you will have to delete both OCSP and CRL cache by following the steps below:

1. Go to Start Menu > Run
2. Type cmd and press Enter
3. Enter the following command to delete both OCSP and CRL cache and press Enter to execute the command:
certutil -urlcache * delete
Not sure if this is worth the risk?

I've used Mozilla for a few weeks now without a problem.

All of a sudden, I am getting error messages on the browser (Mozilla 1.7).
I keep getting this message,

"Error trying to validate certificate from secure1.insweb.com using OCSP - corrupted or unknown response. Error Code - 8073"

Is this a typical fault with Mozilla?

Is this a virus or Trojan related error?

How can I either update the Certificates or fix the OCSP handler?

Both sites I've visited are reputable and I wonder how the certificates became corrupted. I have also visited the sites prior to this with Mozilla and can still visit them using other browsers (MS IE).

The sudden corrupted messages make me wary.

I've made previous posts regarding OCSP Certificate handling by my Mozilla Browser 1.7.3 . I discovered more info now about the problem or at least I think I have.

I need to know more about Thawte.com and their certificates?
My Mozilla browser has a OCSP handling error whenever attempt to access a page with a certificate from thawte.com . I have pretty tough firewall settings and thawte wants to activate Java or Mime. Is this normal and very safe or is it just thawte who does this? No other certificates, that I know of are looking for permission like that.

Am I wrong in my thinking or just fretting more than I should? How does Thawte rank amongst the other certificate carriers? Are their security standards up to snuff?

Thanks to all who reply, from me in advance!

We developed an app using HTTPS, running on Windows 8.1 Pro, and the app is being used in an Proxy enabled environment.

We set the appropriate Proxy setting to the app, but, for some reason, the app cannnot reach the CRL distribution point for cheking the validity of the SSL certificate.

Our app designates the proxy to the Windows API, but it seems like WinInet/WinHttp is not using this proxy when checking for the certificate.

By using netsh winhttp set proxy xxxx, it can reach to the CRL distribution point via the proxy.

It looks like a some sort of bug, but not sure. Can anyone help us to solve the issue here?

Hello there guys,

I installed ZoneAlarm free firewall yesterday and during the install i recieved an error message saying "Validation failed for Vsmon.exe, this is probably due to a missing root certificate." ZoneAlarm seemed to install fine but it slowed my firefox and IE browsers down to crawling speed, so i uninstalled it, and they seem to be working fine again. I had a look around on the net for info on this 'missing root certificate' and found out that Vsmon.exe is a ZoneAlarm file and that a missing root certificate on my pc can be caused by Malicious software.

So to sum up my issue and question is that 'if' i have missing root certificates on my pc (and it wasnt related to ZoneAlarm) does it mean that i have some sort of hidden malware or even a rootkit that could be causing damage under my nose?

I have Super Antispyware, Avast Antivirus free edition, MalwareBytes Anti-malware, Spy-Bot S&D and windows defender and firewall.

I am trying to resolve an issue where multiple client computers in the organisation are using an internally deployed Root CA certificate (before my time and no longer required) to sign the end entity certificate for external websites, google.co.uk
for example. All SSL sites appeared to be affected by this.

However this is not the case as sub domains of sites with issues show the correct cert chain, the below is for mail.google.com

Removing or untrusting this root ca cert breaks access to these sites.

I have reset root certs in various ways, removed machines from the domain, applied no GPOs, manually updated CRL and pulled down updated certs with rootsupd.exe.
It always attempts to use this rouge CA cert to sign the websites cert.

Any assistance would be much appreciated.

May the following workarounds work for you:

Modify the Windows settings to allow the Update Root Certificate feature to update the root certificates automatically. For details, see the following Microsoft TechNet article:

Microsoft web site has a list of solutions but none have worked.I get the following info from their site after attempting to validate.This copy of Windows did not pass genuine validation because the validation process could not be completed. There are several possible causes:Your system level security settings prevented validation from running. Your user account may not have the correct permissions necessary to run validation. Your system settings have been modified in one of the following ways: Security software may have been installed that inadvertently altered your Windows product ID. The validation controls you used were downloaded from a site other than the Microsoft site. You chose to run the validation controls in an alternate compatibility mode. Option 1: Follow steps in Microsoft Knowledge Base article and run validation againMost customers who receive this error are able to resolve the problem by following the resolution steps found in Microsoft Knowledge Base article # 822798 and then running the validation again.

I just tried to run Windows Validation and recieved the following message:


Validation Failure: Product Key Failed Validation

2 years ago, I purchased WinXP Home at a retail outlet and have been using it since then. Unfortunately, I lost the original disk, and have installed XP on my machine from another disk.

But I used my original Product Code when installing it. The code really is mine, and I am looking at it right now.

In another forum, someone told me that all XP disks are the same; that it didn't matter which disk you used to actually install the O/S, that what really mattered was whether the Product Key Code was legitimate or not. In short, there is no connection between the disk that you purchase and the code that comes with it. The disks are "generic" and interchangable, and there would be no problem with using any disk as long as the Product Key Code was legitimate.

Given that, why is my machine failing the Microsoft Validation, and what can be done about it ?

Thanks in advance,

if you have your receipt for the purchase phone ms and request a replacement disk and ask why it is refusing to validate

First, I have reviewed the other posts with similar questions and noted that I can install the certificate into root certificates and most likely this problem will go away, some specifics:

1) When a client reported this error using a pop.secureserver.net on an outlook 2003 client, I just figured it was godaddy or the REALLY old Outlook client, but nonetheless, I went in to troubleshoot it and was convinced it was godaddy, but when I tried
to start my Outlook 2016 client on my Windows 10 computer on their network, I got the same error.  Two notes are important: 1) I use godaddy as well and 2) I used the same computer at a different client just yesterday without a single error message.
2) They use POP 995 w/ SSL & SMTP 465 w/ SSL to pop.secureserver.net & smtpout.secureserver.net repsectively
3) I called the company that manages their firewall and was told that everything was fine, but was sent a certificate from the firewall that might fix the problem.
4) The firewall company tells me they use a fortinet firewall

I have some Windows 7 systems which have not run Windows Updates for many years, and cannot due to regulatory reasons.   We rely upon Windows to automatically update the Trusted Root Certificate store whenever we browse to a web site/web service
that uses a certificate the system doesn't recognize. 
Sometime recently, the Trusted Root Certificate Store no longer updates automatically.  The Windows Event Log shows an error stating that the certificates cannot be downloaded from:
http : // ctldl.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/v3/static/trustedr/en/authrootstl.cab
If we browse to this location manually, the cab file contains an invalid Microsoft certificate. 

This was also an issue in Sept 2018.  At that time, the certificate had expired, and Microsoft eventually updated the certificate to resolve the issue.   This time, the certificate does not appear to have expired.  Why is the certificate
invalid this time, and can Microsoft fix it again?

Really confusing one here. Since this weekend (16/17 July) we have started getting Certificate errors on some sites and applications. This seems to be due to the structure of the URL compared to the "advertised" name IIS is presenting. I'll try
to explain.
I have a site, Website. This is in my domain, domain.com. Therefore the FQDN is website.domain.com. IIS is running and I can access this site through FQDN,NetBIOS or IP address. Good news.
I create a certificate for the server using the FQDN as the subject, I add the Netbios and IP addresses in the Subject Alternate Names and Bind this to port 443 on the server.
I browse to https://website and all is good. I browse to https://website.domain.com I get a certificate error. Checking the certificate, everything is fine, no errors, chain is trusted. open Chrome and do the same, I get that the certificate website.domain.com
is being presented by Website and may not be the site I want.
Using either URL has never been a problem until this weekend, but it seems that IE/Windows/IIS is not liking any URL that is not EXACTLY what IIS is presenting. so my questions are:-
Is anyone else finding this?
Can we issue a certificate that covers all possible DNS resolutions for a site?
How do I control WHAT IIS advertises itself as?
SO far this has affected two major systems on our network and I can see that more will arise, so any help would be appreciated.

In Internet Explorer, when I get a certificate error, if I continue to the web site, I can then view the certificate to see what was wrong.  However, obviously it would be preferable* to see the certificate
before I make the decision to go to the site.  Is this possible?  I'm sure I could use another browser that does this, or maybe use the F12 developer tools, or write a program.   But I'm looking
for a normal-user way to do it.  I think it used to be possible in Internet Explorer, but this might have been 6.x or even earlier.  Or even
way earlier.  Yep.  I'm that old.  I believe this feature is not in Edge either...unless I'm just missing it.  But I'm using ie11 right now.

Having some fun with a windows 7 setup of DirectAccess, have it configured to use ECC certificates on the client for the IPSec authentication, which was working brilliantly, we even have it loaded up behind a Citrix Netscaler to do SSL offloading of the
HTTPS tunnel encryption. But when trying to get Client Preauthentication working, we hit a snag, it seems that the NetScalers dont support ECC certificates, which is a pain, but something we thought we could work around by using an RSA certificate on the client
to performed the pre-authentication (as shown here https://directaccess.richardhicks.com/2016/05/10/directaccess-ip-https-preauthentication-using-citrix-netscaler/).
So we have three CA's, CA1/2 issue RSA certs and CA3 is setup to do the ECC ones, so nice separation of the chains.
So we have our Cert chain for RSA loaded into the load balancer and a new cert issued to the client from CA1... But, every time the client connects to the server (LB) we see the handshake taking place, the server sends a list of its DNs (CA1/2) (https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/kaushal/2015/05/27/client-certificate-authentication/)
to the client, but then the client looks in its store, picks out the ECC certificate (issued from CA3) and fails to authenticate saying no suitable certificate can be found, its like its not even looking at the RSA one at all.
So, thinking something was wrong with the way the LB was asking for client authentication, I tried deleting the ECC cert a... Read more

We have a problem where we encrypted files using EFS, however we can't access or decrypt these files now.

We have the certificate in the certmgr.msc but we do see that the key is missing.

I have reproduced this on another computer and was able to run certutil -repairstore -user MY "Serial Number" which worked in repairing the store and files was decryptable again.

However on the machine that encrypted the files that we need to access this is not the case as there is a popup asking for your Smart Card.

We are not using Smart Cards at all, and have had a look at the following article regarding this issue, but the hotfix didn't work: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2955631

I have software that can remove the encryption but will require the .pfx file, which can't be exported as the certstore doesn't show that it still has this.

It is a self signed certificate generated by Windows, so I can't request a new one using the CA.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Every time I installed the certificate, it is working and allow me access to the website with relevance ID.

People I could use a little direction. I bought a legal copy of Pro 7 last year and used it on three computers and register them with MicroSoft. Sometime around February of this year I started getting pop ups that the operating system wasnít a valid copy. I dealt with this on two of the units and MS made good but the third is where the twist comes in. My lap top started getting the pop ups. Its tells me to click on this and it will give me a phone number to call but since itís all ready registered, no phone number appears. I still get all the automatic downloads etc but the non valid pop ups are driving me nuts. Anybody got a phone number for validation? Thanks in advance for any help fourth coming. Bob


I don't know what "validation" is, but only one machine can be activated with one license. Registration is optional and basically just puts you on a mailing list.

So I built my own computer and purchased an OEM 3 pack of Vista 64 home premium from Amazon/TigerDirect. I installed it, and I am almost 100% I activated it in my system properties once I got to my desktop.

I have been running flawlessly for the last 2 weeks and all of a sudden I come home from work yesterday and there is a pop up saying that I may be "victim to software piracy" or something like that (it didnt say piracy but i forgot) and it prompts me to head to microsoft.com/genuine to validate or whatever. Problem is, when i get there, I can't validate and then it tells me to activate a certain service and try again and I can't activate the service.

Has this happened to anyone else? Do I just need to reinstall Vista?

A:Validation? Where did this come from?

Can you post the popup? It might be a Trojan Horse related popup to scare you into installing something. Microsoft would limit Vista features on an illegal copy or stop you from logging in. Did you call Microsoft to verify the license?

Hi Gang

Long time not been on here. Glad to be back. A couple of things that I have been wondering about with Win 7 that I have noticed. One is when you right click on your computer, and go to properties, and down at the bottom where your Windows activation is, the Product Key # is not the real one, it is some goof look alike. Even if you click to change the Product key, and you enter the one that is for your version, it still comes back with a goofy #. Is this normal, and why is this, for protection, etc.?

Also some time when I reboot when it loads up again my resolution is all messed up and the Icon are all messed up, not where they were before I rebooted. Every morning I start it up it is ok, just seems when I reboot for what ever reason.


A:Validation #'s

Thats right, because if someone logs on to your computer without your permission, it will be bad if he will see your product Key, because he can change it any time and that can remove your genuine Validation of Microsoft.... in other words you don't need to worry because this was only meant for corporate Licences

How i would check whether my os is legal?

A:OS Validation


Read other 1 answers

With all the confusion and contradictions about a clean install with an upgrade disc' I have several questions.

If I want to use the new OS for a while before validating, do I have to give my product key number when it is asked for during the installation. I am not talking about the final validation at the end of the process, but the inquiry that comes at about step 10 during the process?

If I do not want to change any partitions, etc. do I have an option to perform the update within Vista or can I still install within the DVD?


Hello Rich,

No, you do not have to enter your product key number in while installing, but you will only have a 30 day grace period (120 total) before you must enter your key number and activate Windows 7, or uninstall it.

Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version

Sure, you can upgrade Vista to Windows 7 without changing the other partitions if you like.

Hope this helps,

Although I have a validated , activated and registered windows 7 system . I an unable
to download a windows media player ( WMP) I have downloaded Office 2010 and Microsoft sent me welcoming E-mails but validation on WMP always fails.
Has anyone any ideas?


I am not sure what you mean by download a WMP. If you start your current WMP and hit CTRL+M or hit the ALT key, select help and check for updates...

If this is not what you mean, please explain further.

Hi LillieGrandma, could you elaborate on what it is you were trying to do and what problems you had doing it?

I think I found a similar post not so long ago, but for the life of me cant find it now.
I have borderlands on steam. I bought DLC, that installed fine. I started up Borderlands, and got a phone call at the same time from work, so my attention wasn't really on the game. At the validation box, where you need to put in the code that you get from steam, I boo-bbo'ed and pressed close as opposed to enter. When the game came up, I got a box saying I had DLC and need to validate it, or I couldn't play it. Fine, no problem. I close borderlands, restart it, and now there is no option to input the code. The only way I can think of is to uninstall and reinstall everything, which I really don't want to do, partly as I will probably lose my saves (yes, I know I can back them up somewhere) but mostly I don't want to tie up my connection for way too long downloading and faffing all over again, and even then I have no guarantee it will work.

It seems this applies to pretty much all DLC, but for me, I just want to get this damn thing running!

A:DLC Validation

Let's try activating the code in Steam.

At the top click on Games and choose Activate a product on Steam...

Type in the code supplied for your DLC.

Hopefully that works for you.

Is there a way I can change my validation key without reinstalling windows. It is SP2 by the way. I have a legal copy of windows from my previous computer.

i have a question. i have a few computers and i wanted to check if the windows key printed on the side of the pc is still valid. i remember trying to install windows, and i typed the key printed on the side of the PC, but it said that it was not valid or something like that. is there an esierway to check if a key is valid then to format an HD, type the code in, and see if it works? does microsoft have a web page where one can type in a key at check its validity? will an xp key only work on one cpu? if so, does it become released if one were to fromat that hardrive? is there a limit to how many times a key can be used? Thanks

Have Microsoft issued an update that checks if your version of XP is valid? A couple of people have asked me and I'm not sure if that's the case or if it's a virus/spyware problem.

They're getting an icon in the system tray telling them their version is unlicensed.
