CA Requirements

What exactly are the requirements for the certificate that needs to live on a customer's self hosted machine?

 

* If I have a choice, I am going with the CA that SP uses

* it has to apply to the whole machine? I have this setup:

What I know (I think) is that the cert has to be for more that just APFW (or it will miss the Act.Web.API site).

 

what I need is to form the request properly in the language that is understood by the CA.

 

Thanks as always.

Re: CA Requirements

Hi Steve,

 

If you need to cover https://example.com/APFW and https://example.com/ACT.WEB.API, then all you'd need would be a certificate to cover https://example.com.

 

Any directories after the domain name (example.com/APFW) would be covered by the normal single domain certificate.

Any subdomains before the domain name (blog.example.com/APFW) would not covered by the above licence, unless it's a wildcard certificate.

 

It really just comes down to how you are organizing your content on your web server. From what I can see in your screenshot, you'd only need single certificate to cover the domain used for the Default Web Site in IIS.
