Certificate Authority–safe to use real location information



  • I'm just setting up pfSense for the first time. At the moment, it means getting certificates set up for the VPN server.

    When creating a CA, it's asking me for my name, organization name, and locality name, etc.

    Is my "real" information safe to use for a private server? Who will see it?

    people connecting to your vpn would be able to see it.

    If this is a private installation you could also put into it bogus names or company names
    as well this doesn´t matter, but if this is a installation used in a productive network it
    should be also going with real names and informations.
