Problem summary

  • Elements ordering issue in CertificateExtensions
    

Problem conclusion

  • CertificateExtensions uses ConcurrentHashMap to store the
    elements. However, ConcurrentHashMap cannot preserve the
    insertion order of elements. This order difference leads to the
    signature verification failure of the certificate request and
    the "Invalid PKCS#10 signature" SignatureException.The fix is to
    use a map which preserves the elements order.The associated RTC
