Edge computing, which is performed near client, or edge computing together with could computing is expected to provide services with better efficiency than only cloud computing. Meanwhile, most of existing public-key certificate verification methods such as OCSP do not simultaneously achieve efficiency and security with an enough high level. In this paper, we propose a certificate verification method using edge computing and show that our proposed method achieves efficiency with an enough security level by evaluating it through the implementation.
