Certificate information

Hi all,
  I need to be clearer on this obviously. We have a situation where one or two senior engineers are changing infrastructure and not being open about it, they do not want to do the "teamwork" thing and I politically cannot force them to do so since they operate at the same level as me, hence me trying to check the certificate presented to see if it fell into the "acceptable" template created at the project start. It's not ideal, but the technology route will be quicker route to resolution. Politics!
End users cannot create certificates.

I'll re-read the docs, but the sites-enabled/default seems to be the main place where the TLS-* attributes are mentioned.

Not sure about the 3.1.0 thing - my version says: 
freeradius: FreeRADIUS Version 3.1.0 (git #1411859), for host x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu, built on Aug  5 2014 at 17:42:11

Thanks as always

I think your idea is the completely wrong approach for the problem. Make sure you have your PKI under your control => ensure that "people" cannot make up their own cert templates.

Ciao, Michael.
