What type of certificate do I need?

I have a customer who wants to spin up a CA in his domain and have it "certified" if you will by Go Daddy so that when he issues certificates, they will be valid and not self-signed.

What is that and is it doable?  Can I go to Go Daddy and get my certificate authority server certified to issue certs that will be in the chain all the way back up to go daddy and thus be accepted as valid by PCs and devices without it being viewed as self-signed?

Does that make sense?

Thanks

Cliff

You can, but they may not meet the requirements for that, or want to bear the cost.

Take a look here for example.

you might want to look at a Wildcard certificate instead. That is *.domain.xxx and covers you for any host in the same domain - so you can only have one www.domain.xxx but you can also have mail.domain.xxx, accounts.domain.xxx and so forth.

another option is a SAN certificate - that is a single certificate that carries a list of what hosts it is valid for - handy if your hosts aren't in the same domain.
