A certificate that is issued by the certification authority can be revoked within the period of validity by various reasons such as the loss of private key, disqualification or the change in key. Therefore, the certificate status verification must precede prior to use Currently, the CRL or the OCSP methods are used in most cases. But the CRL system can't guarantee the present status of the certificate, and the OCSP generates heavy network traffic by checking or requesting certificate status in real-time using high-capacity messages. In this paper, we propose a system that requests the certificate verification by creating VDN for user identity information. Through this system, the certification authority will be able to guarantee the certificate's status in real-time, and solve the problem of the sewer and network overload by verifying and finding user identity information from VDN, Based on the results, we propose a real-time certificate status verification system which can improve the speed of the verification. We confirmed the improvement in speed by testing and comparing it with the existing methods.
