Error description

  • When using the createcertrequest command on the IBM MQ
    Appliance,
    the CSR (Certificate Signing Request) file that is created is
    missing
    the following fields if they had been specified on the
    createcertrequest
    command:
    
    san_dnsname (Subject alternative name - DNS Name(s))
    san_ipaddr (Subject alternative name - IP Address(es))
    ku (Key usage)
    eku (Extended key usage)
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users of the createcertrequest command on the IBM MQ Appliance
    may be affected by this issue
    
    
    Platforms affected:

    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    The code for the createcertrequest command failed to pass though
    some of the field values to the underlying GSKit command and so
    the content of the resulting CSR file was incorrect.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code was corrected so that all of the supported fields of
    the createcertrequest command are correctly passed through to
    the underlying GSKit command to create the CSR file.
