SSL: Certificate Request

SSL - Certificate RequestThe certificate request is composed of the endpoint’s distinguished name and public key. The distinguished name contains details about the certificate bearer including country, state or province, locality, details about the entity the certificate represents, and often an email to contact if there are problems. The public key is needed later in the signed certificate to allow the SSL handshake to be performed securely.
