(Visual Basic 6.0) Validate Certificate using OCSP Protocol

Demonstrates how to validate a certificate (check the revoked status) using the OCSP protocol.

Note: This example requires Chilkat v9.5.0.75 or greater

ActiveX for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows

' Note: Requires Chilkat v9.5.0.75 or greater.

' This requires the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked.
' See Global Unlock Sample for sample code.

' This example will check the revoked status of a certificate loaded from a file.
Dim cert As New ChilkatCert
Dim success As Long
success = cert.LoadFromFile("qa_data/certs/google.crt")
