Behavioral Changes

EST Renewal

For the EST operation 'simpleenroll', if an end entity with the specified username already exists, it is treated as a renewal: a new certificate is issued for the existing end entity (as long as no settings block this behavior: e.g. Enforce Unique DN or Enforce Unique Public Keys). Previously such a request would be rejected, though not likely to occur since end entity usernames were randomly generated.
