This paper deals with the maintenance of PKI certificates for Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC). We show, that the current standard has several problems in different revocation and delegation processes. This may lead to a security hole allowing usage of ABAC certificates, when it was revoked or transferred. As a solution we suggest architecture changes, that allow to perform revocation and transfer checks in such cases, based on extensions of the validation process of the ABAC certificates. We also discuss some privacy and performance challenges that are raised as a result of our proposal.
