|Applies To||RSA BSAFE Cert-J 2.0.1|
|Issue||RSA BSAFE Cert-J X500Name class does not handle strings using RFC2253 format correctly|
The RFC states that non-typeable characters can be escaped with a backslash, for example: "SN=Lu\C4\8Di\C4\87". To correctly represent this as a Java string, it would look like "SN=Lu\\C4\\8Di\\C4\\87". Cert-J was not correctly interpreting the escaped values.
|Cause||The X500Name class was just stripping out the '/' instead of converting the hex value to a character|
|Resolution||This was fixed in RSA BSAFE Cert-J 2.0.2 and above - please contact RSA Security Technical Support to request an upgrade to fix this issue.|
