Subject: RE: RSA Interop 2005 Guidelines

Just to clarify...

We're not creating end-entity certs for the users we're talking about
here. This is simply a discussion of what will be in the NameID of a
Subject of an Assertion that will contain the AuthnStatement indicating
the user logged in with a password.

So unless folks have repository restrictions for their users that
require the names to be formatted as you suggest, we weren't really
expecting to do much with the non-uid RDNs.

Our user repository is built around looking users up by uid, not CN.  So
for us, I'd prefer to stick with the uid.  I'm sure we can hack it to
work with CN's, but I'd rather not.
