Certificate Validation in Auth Chain for NIST 800-131a compliance mode

If you are running Sterling B2B Integrator in NIST 800-131a strict mode and if any certificate has the Auth Chain flag enabled, then all certificates in its chain (root certificates) must be NIST 800-131a compliant for successful validation.

If one or more certificates in the auth chain are not NIST 800-131a compliant, an error message appears on the summary page of the certificate indicating they are not NIST 800-131a compliant and you will be unable to use this certificate in NIST 800-131a compliance mode.

Note: The Auth Chain flag should not be enabled for self-signed certificates.
