Hi there,

When requesting a certificate in Vista, if you choose to create a custom
request (not going to use a template) and  go to the "details" area, there
are different areas to go through.  The first is Subject.  For subject name
and alternative name, there are alot of choices.  Is what you pick
influenced by what the policy and CPS of the receiving CA says it needs from
you?  Meaning, the CA's policies dictate what you should pick in order to
get a certificate from that CA.  And all CAs can differ?  Same thing for the
Extensions tab?

Thanks!

Kristin
