certification request contains a Distinguished Name ( ) and a public
key, signed by the entity requestingthe certificate. The request is sent to
a who creates a public
key certificate (or some other form) using the information from the
SPKAC and returns it.
In the project Microsoft Internet Explorer certificate requests will be in the PKCS#10 format. Netscape and Mozilla based requests will be in SPKAC format.
