In 12c, Dn (distinguished name) elements of an SSL certificate are being returned in reverse order when compared to 10g or 11g.

mod_plsql and CGI allow to extract these attributes as enviroment variable for processing. While comparing DNS inside a DB with those extracted, it fails as the order of the attributes has been changed.
