The Advanced tab in the Custom Updates Publishing Tool Settings dialog box configures whether to check the certificate revocation list (CRL) for digitally signed software updates catalog certificates that have been revoked from the approved list issued by the Certification Authority (CA). The Enable certificate revocation checking for digitally signed catalog files option is not enabled by default because of the additional overhead to the import process that occurs when the tool determines whether the catalog is on the revocation list.
Enable this option to ensure that digitally signed software updates catalogs are on the CA approved list. For more information, see the Certificate Revocation and Status Web page (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=65980).
The following procedure provides the steps necessary to configure the security settings.
