MDN’s new design is in Beta! A sneak peek:

This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

This feature has been removed from the Web standards. Though some browsers may still support it, it is in the process of being dropped. Do not use it in old or new projects. Pages or Web apps using it may break at any time.

Warning: The features mentioned in this article are deleted proprietary Mozilla extensions, and are not supported in any other browser. They won't work in Firefox 34 or later. Use <keygen> or the future Web Crypto API instead.

RFC 4211, the Internet X.509 Public Key Infrastructure Certificate Request Message Format (CRMF), defines a certReqMessage. The object returned by generateCRMFRequest() contains one of those.
