Goal

Does the Novell Certificate Server support adding other extensions to user certificates, e.g. 802.1x EAP TLS?

Symptom

Can't add an extended authentication protocol (EAP) extension when creating a user certificate.

Can't import a user certificate that contains an extended authentication protocol (EAP) extension.

Cause

The Novell Certificate Server does support additional extensions.  However, Console One and iManager do not currently support adding them.

Fix

One possible work around is to create a custom program that creates the user certificate with the desired extensions.  You can find sample code for the Novell Certificate Library at the Novell developer web site.
