I don't think this is how DN SANs are supposed to be handled. For
example, see this bit about DN name constraints in RFC 5280 section
Restrictions of the form directoryName MUST be applied to the subject
field in the certificate (when the certificate includes a non-empty
subject field) and to any names of type directoryName in the
It would appear to me that DN SANs only provide additional values to the
subject name of the certificate and thus should be treated the same way
as the subject name.
We don't impose any restrictions on subject names with regard to DN of
the subject LDAP entry, so I think we should not do it for DN SANs as
well. Or, alternatively, we should do it for both.
