Usage Guidelines

After a PKI entity is created, a common name must be configured to uniquely identify the PKI entity.

After the common name is configured for a PKI entity, the certificate request packet sent by the device to the CA server carries this name. The CA server verifies every received certificate request packet. For each valid packet, the CA server generates a digital certificate carrying the common name of the PKI entity.


# Set the common name to test for an entity.
