| Online certificate validation provides a real-time alternative to validating a certificate. When enabled, if a certificate is presented, the status of the certificate is requested. The status is sent back as 'current', 'expired', or 'unknown'. Online certificate validation provides a greater degree of validation of certificates when running a signed Java applet. Permitting execution of an applet with an invalid certificate may result in malware, system modification, invasion of privacy, and denial of service.
