Windows Server 2012 + WSUS + RapidSSL wildcard certificate RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,
    I have a question. Can I use RapidSSL wildcard certificate for securing my WSUS (6.2.9200.17646)? I have no domain CA and I have a bad experience with self-signed certificates. Can I use RapidSSL wildcard certificate? Is this supported scenario?

    Thanks!

  • Yes, RapidSSL Wildcard Certificate will work with Windows Server 2012 + WSUS. 

    But make sure what are your website security requirements.

    RapidSSL Wildcard Certificate will only secure the Base-Domain and its unlimited number of sub-domains.

    If you are wishing to secure multiple domains, then you need to go with Comodo UCC SSL Certificate (suggested by Microsoft), which will allow you to secure up to 250 domains.
