Posted by CSS Technical Team on Aug 16, 2012 12:27:00 PM

CSS recently discovered and published information on a potential privilege escalation attack in SCEP-based Certificate Issuance Systems. After this discovery, CSS created the SCEP Validation Service, which aims to close this attack by validating the certificate contents before the Certificate Authority sends it to the requestor.
