Symptoms

Using OAM 11.1.2.3:

STS Requester Configuration Fails When Comparing Identity Attributes to Certificate Entry DN.

During configuring an OAM STS Requester and provided the Encryption and Signing certificate as required by the interface. Then populates the sslclientcertdn with the DN from the certificate just configured. At runtime, got the exception below:


It seems that if any whitespace exists or if there are case differences in the DN string, the evaluation fails because the server makes a simple string comparision on the DN values alhough the string should be normalized and a DN comparison performed.

This behavior results in failure of an automated deployment process to fail.
