CSS11506 - Wildcard cert ??

We have a need to terminate multiple SSL websites on our CSS. So, etc. The problem I have found is that I need to burn 1 public VIP per SSL connection b/c they all need to use tcp 443 inbound and point to their respective cert on the CSS. Is there anyway to possibly generate a wildcard cert that matched only the last part of our domain name ( = * ) and then get away with using only 1 VIP for the multiple sub domains ??

Thanks for your help.




Re: CSS11506 - Wildcard cert ??

CSS can use wildcard certificate just as it uses typical server certificates.

If you are using the CSS to create the CSR, you would use a wildcard common name

- A "*" wildcard character MAY be used as the left-most name component in the certificate. For example, * would

match,, etc. but would not match

Is this doable ? Its very doable using an Apache proxy server. I am just trying to port that functionality over to the CSS
