    Certificate was not decoded - no values of attribute []

    Nikola Malenic Newbie

      I am trying to configure client-cert authentication on WildFly 13. When I generate my certificates using keytool everything works fine,

      but when I generate the same cert with KeyStore Explorer (I am sure they are the same in terms of fields) I get the following log from wildlfy:

      WF is unable to decode my certificate, but here is what it prints as contents of the received certificate:

      Can you help me?



      I noticed that there is a difference the type of CN field. The version that works has a PrintableString type for CN field, and the version that doesn't work has UTF8String as a type for CN field.
