IdenTrust Web Services Failure

1. Which CA components were affected by the incident

  • IdenTrust Global Common OCSP and CRL responders 

2. The CA's interpretation of the incident

  • An IGC OCSP responder certificate had been renewed prior to expiration, but the system did not recognize the renewed certificate and therefore did not respond to OCSP queries after the old certificate expired. The resulting backup of unanswered queries eventually affected all services to IGC users.

3. Who was impacted by the incident

  • Users of all IGC services, including issuance and validations, were impacted

4. When the incident was discovered

  • Identified Failure Time - February 4, 2022 12:01 MST

5. A complete list of all certificates that were either issued erroneously or not compliant with the CP/CPS as a result of the incident

  • None

6. A statement that the incident has been fully remediated

  • Resolution Time - February 04, 2022 16:36 MST
  • Resolution statement - the root cause of the issue was identified as described above and was remediated; intermediate issues were also identified and remediated, and all systems returned to normal operation.
