On my Windows 2008 server, I have one web site in IIS which has many web applications.
Now I am in need to apply an SSL certificate (I mainly needed it for only one of web application).

Now If I apply the ssl Certificate to the web Site, I need to test all the web applications under it.
Is there any way by which the SSL certificate only applies to one web application under the web site which I wanted.

or one option is I keep Http and HTTPS both open for all web applications and just for one I write a URL rewrite rule  so that all the http request redirects to https.

an SSL certificate in IIS works on binds. if you can have specific bind to your app, you could bind only that fqdn to port 443, while the rest won't listen on it.
That way, you can protect only one application.
The rewrite should work for you as well.

I am a bit confused here how to do it.
For example here is few of the application under my site. www.xxx.com/app1, www.xxx.com/app2, www.xxx.com/app3.

Now if I need to apply the ssl certificate only to www.xxx.com/app3 then what binding setting I should do for this?
