Summary

Revoke a certificate through Trend Micro SSL or  the Deep Security for Web Apps console.

 You can revoke a certificate for a variety of reasons, including if its private key has been compromised. However, be cautious because the revocation is permanent; a certificate cannot be un-revoked. You can, however, re-issue the certificate with a new key.

Primary Administrators can revoke certificates. Standard Administrators can also revoke certificates if the Allow Standard Administrators to revoke certificates or set certificates as unused option has been selected for the certificate's organization profile.
