Revoke Certificates

If you suspect one of the following, you should revoke your certificates:

  • Loss, compromise or theft of your private key 
  • Fraud 

There are four ways to revoke your certificates:

  1. Yourself: Log-in to your MAG account using your user ID and password, and follow the steps provided below.
  2. Organization Administrator: Your Organization Administrator can revoke your certificates at any time.
  3. FIS Administrator: Your organization’s designated FIS Administrator can revoke your certificates on your behalf.
  4. Exostar Customer Support: If your certificates have been compromised, contact Exostar Customer Support and request certificate revocation.

To revoke your certificates:

Step 1.  Go to the My Account tab, click the Manage Certificates sub-tab, and then click the Revoke Certificates tab.

     NOTE: You cannot selectively revoke certificates. This activity revokes all of your downloaded certificates.

Step 2.  Click the Revoke button to revoke ALL FIS certificates. You receive a confirmation notification.

Step 3.  Select OK to revoke all certificates. The Certificate Revocation Confirmation displays.
