Certificate validation is one of the toughest scalability problems of the PKI. The goal of this paper is to introduce a Java platform for certificate revocation called CERVANTES. CERVANTES pretends to be an easy to extend tool that allows researchers to develop and test their own “real” revocation systems. As CERVANTES is an open source project it can also be included as part of any open PKI project. The platform is very flexible and due to its modular design it allows for example, to fit a new kind of status checking protocol without having to recompile the source code. CERVANTES includes our implementations of the main standards (CRLs and OCSP) as well as an implementation of a system based on the Merkle Hash Tree (one of the most popular systems among the non-standard ones). Finally, we use CERVANTES to obtain performance results about each developped system. These results guarantee that CERVANTES runs as expected.
