EdgeSight CRL Checking–Speed up EdgeSight


The EdgeSight console uses IIS and .NET which in turn uses built-in Certificate Revocation List (CRL) checking when generating Publisher Evidence for Code Access Security (CAS). When validating the certificate the server walks the chain of Certificates and tries to download the Certificate Revocation List from the internet.

If the computer cannot connect to the internet (timeout, delay, proxy auth, not allowed to etc) this delays the console.

To remove CRL checking add the following to your ASPNET.CONFIG or APP.CONFIG file:

<generatePublisherEvidence enabled="false"/>

ASPNET.CONFIG file is in the following folder.


This is what yours should look like:


Open the server management to restart IIS services or restart the server.


Thanks to for the tip.
