UTF8 support in the Firefox certificate store?
Initially I posted this on another support forum, but was kindly
requested to post here instead:
I have created a X.509 v3 client certificate using OpenSSL.
The CN and OU field contain UTF8 characters, in this case Thai
characters for testing purposes.
When I import this certificate into the Windows certificate store it
shows all fields correctly, ie I can actually see the Thai characters
However when I import the certificate into Firefox (3.04) and view the
certificate subject from Firefox (tools->options->advanced->view
certificates->view->details) th...x-posting from dev-tech-crypto: web crypto APIs and resources

Create the ASP.NET Web Application
In this section, you create a simple ASP.NET application. In the sections to follow, you will use client-side certificate authentication to secure this application.
Start Visual Studio .NET, and then create a new ASP.NET Web Application project named SecureSite.

ideas how we can accomplish this or know of some websites that i can
look at for some ideas?

Would anyone be totally opposed to adding this feature and having it enabled via group policy? That would allow some IT shops to roll it out with their preferred smart card middleware...like ActivClient.

Does anyone know who should they talk to about it?
I thought the answer to this question might help other Reps when dealing
with local CAs, which is why I'm posting to this ML.
I believe the process is documented at https://wiki.mozilla.org/CA.

...dev-tech-crypto moderation changes
Since its origin a few months ago, the email@example.com
list has been moderated, in an effort to keep spam out of the list.
The rules have been rather simple: mail sent by list members gets right
through, the rest goes into a moderation queue where it is reviewed
daily. The occasional on-topic message from a non-subscriber address
gets manually passed through, and the rest is discarded. Spam filters
(are intended to) recognize most spam and discard it outright, so that
the moderator need not review hundreds of spams daily to find the
occasional rare nuggets.
Un...Can firefox use personal certificates from the Windows store
Our windows users have personal certificates that enable them to
authenticate to web sites that accept certificates. However, firefox does
not recognize those certificates nor present them to web sites.
The certificates are auto enrolled and are replaced every month. We don't
wish for our 3500 users (even 10% of them) to have to export and import the
certificates for Firefox. Moreover, the certificates are marked
non-exportable to keep them more secure.
I understand that it would take a custom pkcs11 plugin to get the browser to
obtain certs from the Windows certificat...Anti-spam changes to dev-tech-crypto mailing list
Dear readers of dev-tech-crypto mailing list, and mozilla.dev.tech.crypto
As you have probably noticed, in the past 7 days we've seen a number of
emails that have gotten through the list's meager grep-based spam filters.
I have been increasing the rules trying to trap more spam, but the spam
grows faster than I can create rules for it. I apologize for that.
The situation has simply become intolerable, so as your list moderator,
I have taken steps to cut it off, and am prepared to take more steps.

Name: Saujanya Patel
Summary: How to get Firefox to not permanently store invalid SSL certificates as a default?
When Firefox is presented with an invalid SSL certificate (i.e. the
certificate has expired, the CA is not trusted, etc). It warns the user
that certificate is invalid and forces the user to retrieve (and
presumably review) the certificate.
How ever by default after accepting the certificate it has a check in
the box marked 'Permanently Store this Certificate'. It would be great
