We have a Win2k8 r2 domain named domain.local (domain1). Recently we partner with another company who uses domain.tld (domain2) as their ad domain name. Their wireless users use their AD radius server with ssl cert doman.tld to authenticate to the wireless network. We are migrating partners ad into our, but since it's not possible to purchase SSL certificates for internal AD domain names (.local) any more we would like to re-use their radius server with the existing ssl certificate, so my questions are:

1. Is it possible to add additional AD alias (domain.tld) to domain.local so that ssl could be used once users from partner company log on with their new username username@domain.local?

2. Would users log on using existing domain alias domain1\username or using the UPN?

I don't see why you couldn't create a zone in DNS of domain.tld and have it point to domain.local.

I usually use internal CA (the Windows one works just fine) for requirements such as 802.1x and internal only web sites/services as you can push the CA root certificate to all domain joined clients through GPO, in your case you could also push the CA rot certificate out to the other domain computers as well.

Using a private certificate has the advantage of not costing anything (bar the maintenance of a CA server) and allows you to use private certificates for anything else that you need internally, this could be for web interfaces on copiers/printers/wireless access points etc.
