Usage guidelines

A PKI entity includes the identity information that can be used by a CA to identify a certificate applicant. You can configure multiple attributes for a PKI entity, such as common name, organization, organization unit, locality, state, country, FQDN, and IP address. The information will be included as subject contents in the certificate issued by the CA.
