Description glapadula 2006-01-06 18:33:29 UTC
I'm Gerardo Lapadula and I work for the Information Technologies National Office
(Argentinian Government). 
Our team was mainly dedicated to research any issues regarding Digital
Signatures, in that matters we've been testing 2.0 and
encountered that some digital certificates aren't supported. 
After those tests we realised that OpenOffice doesn't support digital
certificates issued by CAs with some characters in its Distinguished Name (DN),
particularly the following: á, é, í, ó, ú and quotation marks (").
For instance the CN: AC de la Subsecretaría de Gestión Pública isn't supported.
This error do happen within the CA certificate, so we suppose the bug is in the
checking of 'Validation Path' of certificates. 
We hope you could find and resolve this issue.
Best regards.

JL->glapadula: Could you give some more information? Are the problematic
certificates displayed in the "Certificate Selection" dialog, where you select
the certificate with which you want to perform the sign operation? Does the
signing operation fail altogether or is the signature/certificate afterwards
displayed as invalid? 

Would it be possible to provide us the CA certificate and a issued test
