Can I generate certificate in SET type or S/MIME or Authenticode with SBB?

S/MIME and Authenticode are intended *usages* of the X.509 certificate and you can create them by setting KeyUsage and ExtKeyUsage fields appropriately. As for SET type - I have no idea what it is.

Which one of these properties use for S/MIME or Authenticode?

Authenticode uses DigitalSignature and CodeSigning

S/MIME uses DigitalSignature, KeyEncipherment, DataEncipherment and EmailProtection. Also S/MIME requires that the e-mails are specified in Subject and/or SubjectAlternativeName. You will find more information in the corresponding RFC.

What SubjectRDNs must be uses in S/MIME and Authenticode?

About SET :

The Secure Electronic Transaction (SET) specifications [SET1; SET2; SET3] define a standard to support credit card payment transactions over distributed communications networks such as the Internet. Essentially, SET defines a standard payment protocol and specifies requirements that the supporting PKI is expected to meet.

SET adopts the X.509 Version 3 public-key certificate format, and it defines specific private extensions that have meaning only in a SET context. SET also levies certain profile requirements on the standard extensions. Figure 6.2 illustrates a SET certificate. Note that Figure 6.2 does not represent all the possible extensions. (For example, it does not represent the Hashed Root Key extension present in a SET root CA certificate.)

Thank you for the pointer. As SET certificates are regular X.509 certificates, you will be able to use SecureBlackbox to create and manage such certificates. More detailed information can be obtained in the corresponding normative references (SET specifications).

We will be able to give you more assistance with your tasks under terms of our custom services.
