When the HTML tag KEYGEN is loaded into Microsoft Internet Explorer, the tag does not appear.


This is a Netscape-specific HTML tag. It is not supported in Microsoft Internet Explorer.


A potential workaround is to understand what this tag is doing at a low level and determine if a script could accomplish the same task.


This behavior is by design.

More information

The form element KEYGEN can be used in Netscape Navigator to create public keys to interact with Netscape's Certificate Server.

Steps to Reproduce Behavior

Below is an example of this tag.

   <KEYGEN NAME="subjectKeyGenInfo">
   <INPUT TYPE="submit" VALUE="Submit Request">
