+Product: Mono: Class Libraries
+Version: 1.1

+Status: NEW

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: 'Set Of' Auth.Attr in PKCS #7 must be sorted
+If generating a PKCS #7 signature with authenticated attributes, these
+attributes must be lexicographically sorted as per DER standard.
+Failure to do so will lead to verification failures in at least one PKCS #7
+implementation, BouncyCastle java, since it actually sorts the attributes
+before verifying the signature. 
+On the other hand OpenSSL does no sorting but runs with the original order
+which means Mono signatures verifies fine even in their current state.
