Viewing and deleting Internet certificates

When you no longer want an Internet client to use SSL client authentication to access a Domino® server, or a Notes® client to send S/MIME encrypted mail to a specified recipient, delete the Internet certificate from the Internet client's Person document or the specified recipient's Person document in the Domino® Directory.

About this task

The client still has the Internet certificate, but without the Internet certificate in the Person document, the Internet client cannot use client authentication to access a Domino® server, and the Notes® client cannot send S/MIME encrypted mail to the specified recipient.

An Internet client can still access the Domino® server anonymously if you have anonymous access set up on the server, or use name-and-password authentication to access the server. A Notes® client can still send unencrypted mail messages to the user.

You can also view information about Internet certificates in the Domino® Directory.
