Certificate number - the serial number of this certificate
Certificate issuer - information about the certificate authority (CA) who issued the digital certificate associated with this client key
Certificate subject - information about the owner of the digital certificate associated with this client key

For public keys without a certificate, the following pieces of information are displayed:

 

Alias -  the name used to refer to this key in this MFT Server instance
Key algorithm - the key algorithm (e.g. RSA, DSA)
Key size - the length of the key (e.g. 1024, 2048, 4096)
Fingerprint - the fingerprint of this key. This can be particularly useful when you've just imported a client key from another party and you would like to verify the authenticity and source of the key (e.g. by verbally comparing with the key's sender) first before actually using it.
