A distinguished name is a name used with digital certificates to uniquely identify a user. For example a distinguished name can be:

  • CN=user

  • DC=example

  • DC=com

Optionally, you can use the container keyword to specify that the order of the fields in a DN and their values exactly match the configured DN, or use the wildcard keyword to specify that the values of fields in a DN must match but the order of the fields does not matter.
