questions around IE certificate selection display RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    In the past, some MS application displayed the common name of the client certificate in the certificate selection, while others application displayed the "friendly name" linked into MS certstore to a client certificate with a specific serial number.

    It seems that IE under windows 7 would use the friendly name in the client certificate selection window for mutual tls.

    My questions:

    1. Will this be usage of "friendly name" for certificate selection (instead of CN) be standardized accross future versions of IE product? Will it be extended to future version of Office?If yes, where could I find the detailed information for the various products?

    2. For internet explorer:

    a.What is the max lenght of the CN effectively displayed by default in the client certificate selection window?Where could I find additional information?

    b.What is the max lenght of the "Friendly name" effectively displayed by default in the client certificate selection window? If yes, where could I find additional information?

    thanks in advance for any information.

    Fred
