Will a CRL file name such as
fred.freddy.domain.crl work for a Certificate Revocation List URL? I cannot find any documentation to state that it will not work.
Closest that I have found is a recommendation that it should not be done in the following article: Designing CRL Distribution Points and Authority Information Access locations. Specifically:
Now, we need to design a URL form. This means that we need to design the name for CRT/CRL file, virtual directory (if necessary), separate host (if necessary). There is no significant recommendations, except that file name should be simple and do not contain spaces and/or special characters.
Is anyone aware of a specific issue with using a dot notation for a CRL file? It works nicely with a current naming convention that we have and would easily allow admins be able to follow the pattern when creating new Issuing CA's in our environment.
