A '''repository''' is a [[database]] of active [[digital certificate]]s for a [[certification authority]] system. The main business of the repository is to provide [[data]] that allows [[user]]s to confirm the status of [[digital certificate]]s for individuals and businesses that receive [[digital signature|digitally signed]] [[message]]s. These [[message]] [[recipient]]s are called [[relying parties]]. [[CA]]s post [[certificate]]s and [[CRL]]s to repositories.
