NuGet package manager should display 'Owner' field for NuGet.org packages #6631
@onovotny Makes sense. We have been discussing this since signing was incubated. But it also adds to the confusion as to what is shown. I was thinking to have an account setting to have a Display name that can be a CN from the registered certificates.
@anangaur I would expect the following behavior --
CN show up in the search results to help differentiate a bogus package from a real one. In that context, the package isn't downloaded, so I'd expect the search result endpoint to provide that extracted information. It could then download the public cert "just in time" upon request to show in the UI (on click).
Showing it in the details portion is "too late," as a primary reason for code signing is to disambiguate and prove ownership.
