I have a web application which is restricted to a limited number of user/customers.   I need to implement SSL as i have moved from shared hosting to a dedicated Server 2003.

If a CA key is necessary then I will get one but I am interested to know if one SSL cert will work across subdomains?

Also, would SelfSSL work for me?....in theory I know who and where my users are and in fact they access my app (currently at least) in a custom browser

OR

Am I basically asking for unecessary trouble?

Thanks

yes, so long as it is a "wildcard certificate"

then it will work just fine.  you get the same encryption with a self signed cert as any other, you just miss out on the third party authenticity verification - which by your description is not necessary in your case.
