Hi,

I have read through the PKIX mailing list archives to find a method for
using name components longer than 64 characters in the Subject field of an
X.509 v3 certificate. Unfortunately I could not find a solution which
satisfies RFC 5280 (3280) by using standard CN, Title, O or OU components.

Now I plan to use a custom attribute-value pair in the Subject field. Is
there any widely used OID for really long names in the Subject field? I
need to put full company titles, up to 500 characters long, in the Subject
field.

Regards,

Ersin
