I was trying to understand the cycle of certificate involvement in initiating connections of thick OCS client from my internal workstations to the OCS server.

I read that we can use both internal PKI or an external trusted RA certificate for this purpose. irrespective, there are two types of communication:
1. OCS Server in one pool to an OCS server in another pool.
2 OCS Communicator client to ocs server in their respective pools.

I read something here, but it doesn't come out very clearly:http://www.ocspedia.com/Certificates.htm

Would someone like to explain this in easy terms of Asymmetric keys and step by step encryption?

Thanks
