Hi

I am in he need to assign multiple certs on one server. I have a web app that uses a cert for SSL connection(comodo) installed on a windows 2003 server for my application. I also need to add a code signing cert and 2 mobile certs for java and android.

I was told it would be better to host and sign my own certs

the application is a desktop application(uses the SSL cert) and we just or are in the process of developing 2 mobile products for the application which will run on the same server. so my question is  how do I install multiple certs on one server so the desktop app can use the cer(SSL and code signing cert), and the mobile apps can use theirs as well

Thank you

The only way to do this would be to use different ports for the certs. Only one cert can be bound per port (other than a wildcard cert that can respond for multiple sites).  You can only assign one cert to the SSL port.  So to use multiple certs, you would need to include the port number in the address used to access it.

Hi Rick

is this common or am I approaching this backwards. maybe its just normal when you get into the mobile world. it is difficult since the management application that control the mobile and the desktop are all one application for the server.  I also can’t get a clear answer from the cert companies,does a wild card cover, SSL, Java, and code signing. Is it better to just install a MS cert service and generate my won certs
 If you have experience with it I appreciate our response

Thank you

I would recommend you generate your own wildcard cert and make sure everything works.  If it all works, then purchase a wildcard cert from one of the authorities.   I know the wildcard will do SSL, OWA, and the remote devices, but I have no experience with using it for JAVA and code signing.  I have a feeling that it will work.

Hi Rick

very good advice and thank you for your input, I guess it is new territory as the product hasn’t been done  before and I just wanted to make sure there wasn’t another way.

Thank you very much
