3.1.2.1 Abstract Data Model

This client defines the following abstract elements in addition to those specified in section 3.1.1.1.

Client_Intermediate_CA_Certificates: A collection of CACERTBLOB constructs (section 2.2.2.1) that contain intermediate CA certificates that are used by clients and servers to build certificate chains. A client and server must validate and verify certificate path information, as specified in [RFC3280] section 6. Details about the requirements for certificate path validation are specified in [RFC3280] section 9.<30>

Client_Root_CA_Certificates: A collection of CACERTBLOB constructs that contain root CA certificates that are used by clients and servers to validate certificate chains. A client and server must validate and verify certificate path information, as specified in [RFC3280] section 6. Details about the requirements for certificate path validation are specified in [RFC3280] section 9.<31>

Client_Current_Version: An unsigned integer with values between 0 and 15. This ADM element is used to determine whether the current template is supported by the client. If CT_FLAG_REQUIRE_SAME_KEY_RENEWAL is implemented (see section 3.1.2.4.2.2.2.8 for more details), then this ADM element MUST be set equal to 4. Otherwise, it MUST be set to 15.

The following abstract data represents the subset of values set on a certificate template with which this mode is invoked by a caller. The certificate template data structure is defined in [MS-CRTD]. Each element of the Certificate.Template.* data corresponds to a single attribute of a certificate template and shares its type. For example, the Certificate.Template.flags datum corresponds to the flags attribute specified in [MS-CRTD] section 2.4 and is an integer.

Certificate.Template.flags: Corresponds to flags attribute defined in [MS-CRTD] section 2.4.

Certificate.Template.pKIExtendedKeyUsage: Corresponds to the pKIExtendedKeyUsage attribute defined in [MS-CRTD] section 2.12.

Certificate.Template.pKIKeyUsage: Corresponds to the pKIKeyUsage attribute defined in [MS-CRTD] section 2.13.

Certificate.Template.pKIMaxIssuingDepth: Corresponds to the pKIMaxIssuingDepth attribute defined in [MS-CRTD] section 2.14.

Certificate.Template.pKIDefaultKeySpec: Corresponds to the pKIDefaultKeySpec attribute defined in [MS-CRTD] section 2.9.

Certificate.Template.pKIDefaultCSPs: Corresponds to the pKIDefaultCSPs attribute defined in [MS-CRTD] section 2.8.

Certificate.Template.pKICriticalExtensions: Corresponds to the pKICriticalExtensions attribute defined in [MS-CRTD] section 2.7.

Certificate.Template.msPKI-RA-Signature: Corresponds to the msPKI-RA-Signature attribute defined in [MS-CRTD] section 2.18.

Certificate.Template.msPKI-Minimal-Key-Size: Corresponds to the msPKI-Minimal-Key-Size attribute defined in [MS-CRTD] section 2.19.

Certificate.Template.msPKI-Template-Cert-Template-OID: Corresponds to the msPKI-Cert-Template-OID attribute defined in [MS-CRTD] section 2.20.

Certificate.Template.msPKI-RA-Policies: Corresponds to the msPKI-RA-Policies attribute defined in [MS-CRTD] section 2.22.

Certificate.Template.msPKI-RA-Application-Policies: Corresponds to the msPKI-RA-Application-Policies attribute defined in [MS-CRTD] section 2.23.

Certificate.Template.msPKI-Certificate-Application-Policy: Corresponds to the msPKI-Certificate-Application-Policy attribute defined in [MS-CRTD] section 2.25.

Certificate.Template.msPKI-Enrollment-Flag: Corresponds to the msPKI-Enrollment-Flag attribute defined in [MS-CRTD] section 2.26.

Certificate.Template.msPKI-Private-Key-Flag: Corresponds to the msPKI-Private-Key-Flag attribute defined in [MS-CRTD] section 2.27.

Certificate.Template.msPKI-Certificate-Policy: Corresponds to the msPKI-Certificate-Policy attribute defined in [MS-CRTD] section 2.24.

Certificate.Template.msPKI-Certificate-Name-Flag: Corresponds to the msPKI-Certificate-Name-Flag attribute defined in [MS-CRTD] section 2.28.

Certificate.Template.msPKI-Template-Schema-Version: Corresponds to the msPKI-Template-Schema-Version attribute defined in [MS-CRTD] section 2.16.

Certificate.Template.revision: Corresponds to the revision attribute defined in [MS-CRTD] section 2.6.

Certificate.Template.msPKI-Template-Minor-Revision: Corresponds to the msPKI-Template-Minor-Revision attribute defined in [MS-CRTD] section 2.17.

Certificate.Template.cn: Corresponds to the cn attribute specified in [MS-CRTD] section 2.1.

The following ADM elements define data needed to construct a certificate request, but not defined within a certificate template. These elements are set by a caller that invokes this client mode.

IsRenewalRequest: A Boolean flag indicating if a certificate request is a renewal request.

CertificateToBeRenewed: When certificate request is a renewal request, this element contains a certificate that is being renewed as well as its private key.

RACertificates: A list of certificates and their corresponding private keys to co-sign a certificate request.
