List of certificate use cases for which compatibility with elliptic curve (ECC)-based keys is known

As computing power becomes increasingly available, the need to use stronger cryptographic keys also increases. Often there is a need (for example, because the keys have to be protected by a trusted platform module) to use elliptic curves (ECC) based keys to be used. For their use, it is essential that compatibility with the intended use cases is ensured.

Below is a list of use cases for which I am aware of compatibility.

Umlauts in certification authority certificates

Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs) have been officially supported since Windows Server 2012 as part of the Certificate Authority and associated components.

However, if you want to use them in your certification authority certificates, there are some specifics to consider.
