This is an enhancement request. Please consider making this method a public
In the GridShib project, to process an X.509 certificate passed as an HTTP
parameter, we are using the following incantation:
X509Certificate cert =
readCertificate(new BufferedReader(new StringReader(certStr)));
where certStr is the value of the HTTP parameter. Since readCertificate in
Java CoG is a private method, this only works if we copy the method definition
to our codebase.
Change committed to trunk.
