Hello
I would like to configure CDP = https://crl.test.com/test.crl
But the warning message says https protocol is not supported.

How to force CDP to https?
If impossible, could you tell reason that it's impossible?
Thank you.

    It is impossible and unsupported. No CDP location in the world is configured with HTTPS, only plain HTTP is used.

    The reason is to avoid infinite loops. When you connect to HTTPS CDP, you need to check that certificate before downloading the CRL. But you can't validate the certificate until you download the CRL from CDP. And you cannot download the CRL from CDP until you validate its certificate and so on.

    Hi there,

    You can not force the CDP to HTTPS as it cannot validate the certificate required for it. You can follow up the below thread where you will find the answer to the same question.
