ApplicationInstanceCertificates or UserIdentityTokens may expire, get invalid or may be rejected on Client or Server side.

ApplicationInstanceCertificates verification shall be executed every time the SecurityToken is renewed for a SecureChannel. OPC UA Applications may do additional verifications between SecurityToken renews e.g. if the trust list is updated from a GDS.

If the SecureChannel does not use ApplicationInstanceCertificates, the OPC UA Application should execute ApplicationInstanceCertificate checks for the Session at a rate used for SecureChannel renewals.

The recovery mechanisms for ApplicationInstanceCertificate replacement scenarios are described in 6.7.

OPC UA Application should have internal notification mechanisms to get informed about removal of user identities or should frequently check if the UserIdentityTokens is still valid or if the authorization for a UserIdentityTokens was changed.
