SAML: Submit a request to revoke a client certificate

When needed, you can submit a request to revoke an issued client certificate.

For example, you may need to revoke a certificate because it is no longer needed, or because it’s been determined that the certificate’s private key has been compromised.

The client certificate revocation process consists of three steps:

  1. Submit a request to revoke the certificate.

  2. An administrator approves the request.

  3. DigiCert revokes the certificate.

Before you begin

Have the SAML certificate request's URL. If you lost the URL, contact your administrator.

Submit the request

  1. Go to the Client Certificates page

    Use the SAML certificate request's URL provided to you to sign in.

  2. Submit the revocation request

    1. On the Client Certificates page, locate the client certificate and click Revoke.

    2. In the "Are you sure you want to revoke the certificate? This cannot be undone" window, click OK.

What's next

You CertCentral account administrator will be notified of the pending revocation request. If the administrator denies your request, you will receive an email letting you know your request has been denied.

If the administrator approves the revocation request, DigiCert will revoke the issued certificate.
