I Have CSS 11503 with SSL module, the question is :
Can i have 5 domain names i.e.
all pointing to the same VIP ? or 5 different VIP has to be there ?? and also just to confirm i would need to generate 5 certificates ?
please advice !!
this is recurrent question.
The answer is : you need multiple vip.
The reason is because to see the domain name you need to first decrypt the ssl application data to see the http request.
To decrypt the ssl data, you need to know which certificate to use.
The certificate is linked to a domain name.
So you need to know the domain name before you can decrypt.
The only way to do this, is to assign a different vip to each domain.
