Please assist with SSL certification understanding

CAn somebody please help me understand when and the number of SSL certifications are required?


Two CSS, one active and one fail over/redundant.

One Content rule with two services

Both of the services contain one server.

Do we need one SSL certificate for the content rule and then copy it to the redundant/fail over CSS? Or do I need a SSL certificate for each CSS?

If the client is utilizing their own DNS and assigned a unique domain name that is being utilized in the URL/URI they use to hit the servers... does this impact the SSL certificate?

I know these are some basic questions. I have read quite a bit but just don't have the hands on to get me over this hump.

Thanks you for your assistance. If there is a Cisco document I missed that answeres this type of quiestion, please direct me to it. I will be glad to keep digging.

Re: Please assist with SSL certification understanding

Both CSS have SSL modules and we want to use SSL termination off loading. SSl from the client to the CSS and http from the CSS to the server...
