[S] Change MyProxy CA config to write user OpenID into issued cert. DN

The CEDA MyProxy service dynamically issues user certificates based on CEDA users credentials held in the database. Currently it sets a new certificate with a DN containing the user's username. Change this to add the user's OpenID instead. e.g.


This has been agreed as the standard way to represent user DNs in the ESG federation (Luca, Rachana and Phil e-mail correspondence).

MyProxy version >= 4.6 is required to support this. There is still some doubt as to whether the DN specification allows for all the characters that are allowed in a URL. '&' and '?' could be problematic but we do not expect to support OpenIDs containing URL query parameters.

The fallback is that the OpenID is provided in the embedded SAML assertion contained in the X.509 certificate extension.
