Can I consider issuerDN and serial number (both combined) of digital certificate unique for every certificate?
Is serial number of certificate different for every certificate issued by the same issuer?

The serial number is supposed to be unique as you suggest, according to RFC3280 section 188.8.131.52.
Nice to meet you.
