Hi,

Just played with the 1.1.0 release. Very nice! Thank you very much for gnoMint. On the website I read that this is the place to submit feature requests so here it is:

Add a field for emailAddress

Add a field for subjectAltName
This is particularly useful (at least for me) if you use a laptop on a local LAN to connect to for example a local OpenVPN server called vpn.local and on a remote network where this same OpenVPN server is reachable as vpn.example.org. Same example could apply to a webserver. After much Googling I found out that you can use subjectAltName to issue multiple comma separated hostnames and/or IP addresses as follows:

CN=vpn.local
subjectAltName=DNS:vpn.example.org,DNS:192.168.1.1

Thanks again for your efforts. Most appreciated.

Kind regards,
Pieter

    I second this. For a user cert, there should be an emailAddress field.
