Hi Team,

We have found that the Pacemaker certificate is not generated with SubjectAlternativeName.

Please find the general guidelines :

In case client certificates are required, verification of the client identity SHOULD use the first matching subjectAltName field of the client certificate to be compared with an authorization identity present in a local or central AA database.
To mitigate the Man-in-the-Middle risk, the server identity verification is RECOMMENDED to be done as well. A client can accept several server certificates in certificate validation issued by the same trusted CA.

After certificate chain validation, the TLS client MUST check the identity of the server with a configured reference identity (e.g., a hostname). The clients MUST support checks using the subjectAltName field with type dNSName. If the certificate contains multiple subjectAltNamevalues then a match with any one of the fields is considered acceptable.
