This document forms a certificate profile for Qualified Certificates,
based on RFC 2459, for use in the Internet.  The term Qualified
Certificate is used to describe a certificate with a certain
qualified status within applicable governing law.  Further, Qualified
Certificates are issued exclusively to physical persons.
The goal of this document is to define a general syntax independent of
local legal requirements.  The profile is however designed to allow
further profiling in order to meet specific local needs.
It is important to note that the profile does not define any legal
requirements for Qualified Certificates.
