{
    // Create a new CertificateRequestProperties object.
    CertificateRequestProperties reqProperties = new CertificateRequestProperties();

    // The default value is an empty string.
    String strDefaultName = reqProperties.Subject;

    // If the input option does not equal the default option, reset the property value.
    if (strNameIn != strDefaultName)
    {
        reqProperties.Subject = strNameIn;
    }
