Re: valid entries for CN in certificate

Just about everything I've read says to use a FQDN for the cn when
creating your server certificate. I've done this and it works. Fine.
question: why fqdn? are there good reasons for insisting on fqdn? why
not just the short hostname? opinions?
I suggest you read the related RFC's, and then you'll know the answer. :)
