OCSP Traffic RRS feed

  • Question

  • Reading about OCSP recently, I'm sure I came across a statement that indicated that an OCSP response is of a fixed, know size. Is this correct and if so, can anyone indicate what size the response is?

    More generally, is OCSP viewed as 'lightweight' in terms of traffic generated, say in a similar way to DHCP, or is it a more 'heavyweight' protocol?
