Wildcard Certificats and 4400 WLC

First, I know the 4400 has been EOS. I am planning on replacing this with a new controller next year as part of a larger project. In the meantime, the certificate we have setup on our guest network is due to expire soon.

I am pretty familiar with how to get a new certificate setup, but was wondering if anyone has had any experience at using a "wildcard" type certificate, instead of the standard webserver style cert?  (http://www.digicert.com/wildcard-ssl-certificates.htm)

Its my understanding that a wildcard certificate can be used for any type of server, but the server needs to support it.

Thanks.

As far as I know, the wlc do not support wildcard certificates.

All my recent install using a 3rd party certificate has been with installing a chained certificate.

Here is a doc that shows you how to combine a chained certificate and install it on a wlc.

To be thorough, I opened a TAC Case, and was told that we could, in fact, use a Wildcard certificate. The link I was sent is the same one you linked.

I have not tried this, nor do I have a lab unit to test on.
