Problem summary

  • SURNAME, SN, TITLE, and T distinguished name
    attributes
    
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    
    Within the PKCS AVA.java class there are a few cases where more
    than one string maps to the
    same "attribute OID".  For example, SURNAME and SN.  Also, TITLE
    and T.
    The ordering of these attribute definitions within AVA.java can
    determine how a
    distinguished name that contains one of these attributes will be
    displayed.  For example:
    
    T=Private Person, EMAILADDRESS=john.doe@abc.com,
    SERIALNUMBER=10100713470000262530, GIVENNAME=John,
    SURNAME=Doe
    TEST, CN=Joe Doe TEST, C=US
    
    or
    
    TITLE=Private Person, EMAILADDRESS=john.doe@abc.com,
    SERIALNUMBER=10100713470000262530, GIVENNAME=John, SN=Doe
    TEST,
    CN=John Doe TEST, C=US
    

Problem conclusion

  • The fix applied to the AVA.java class for this apar, ensures
    that the ordering of these attribute definitions
    matches Sun's.
    
    The associated Hursley CMVC defect is 163777.
    The associated Austin CMVC defect is 110141.
    The fix is available in:
    5.0 SR11 FP2
    6.0 SR8
    .
    The affected jar is "ibmpkcs.jar".
    The build level of this jar for Java 5.0, and 6.0 is 20100323.
