New functionality:

Implementation of "Extended Key Usage" parameter to allow the creation of certificates that require it. I needed it to generate certificates for Microsoft Windows to enable the active directory LDAPS function by adding the "SSL/TLS Web Server Authentication" extended key usage. At this time, only the extension values below have been implemented:

I did not implement the OID's 1.3.6.1.5.5.7.3.5-7. They belong to id-kp-ipsecEndSystem, id-kp-ipsecTunnel and id-kp-ipsecUser and are reported to be obsolete as per RFC 4945 section 5.1.3.12, "ExtendedKeyUsage".

Regardless what the certificate request contains, the extended key usage must be always explicitly set at the request verification screen to be included in the certificate. Even if a externally generated request did not add this attribute, it can be set additionally with WebCert.
