Nobody uses X.509v2 certificates. In the context of X.509, the
successor of 1 is effectively 3, there is no "2".
Version 2 (ITU-T Recommendation X.509, Nov 1993 http://www.itu.int/rec/T-REC-X.509-199311-S)
Version 2 of the X.509 certificate was very short-lived and
rarely used. In fact, the Internet Engineering Task Force
(IETF) did not turn version 2 of the certificate into a RFC
standard whatsoever. [...]
