Description (partial)

The log Event 113025 shows the incorrect certificate field if the error is due to the 'secondary-username-from-certificate' when the ASA is configured for Double Authentication.

As an example, if the the Client Cert does NOT have an Email Address but the ASA has 'username-from-certificate CN' and 'secondary-username-from-certificate EA' configured in the tunnel-group, you will see:

%ASA-auth-5-113025: Group DA-CertGroup-QA: [CN] field missing in Subject DN for user name.  Could not authenticate ssl-client connection from

The Event should say "[EA] field missing..." since the cert is missing EA not CN (CN is for the primary, EA is for secondary authentication). The error is displaying the field for the primary authentication when in fact, the issue is with the field being used for the secondary authentication.
