The last strategy is arguably one of the best if you don’t want to, or can’t migrate to FQDNs because you can continue using your existing CA portal to manage all of your SSL Certificates in one place Extended Validation EV, Organization Validated OV, plus those issued under non public roots for internal use. This way you get all the advantages of a hosted CA answer e. g. renewal reminders/reviews, centralized reporting and inventory management, APIs to totally automate certificate issuance and delegated user administration with the flexibility of continuous to assist internal servers and applications.
We wanted to give corporations a way to proceed issuing SSL to internal server names and reserved IPs with out the need to run an inner CA, rely on self signed certificates, or obtain a corporate exact deepest CA, so we created IntranetSSL. IntranetSSL is an addition to our cloud based certificates administration portal, providing immediate issuance of organization vetted certificates in line with pre vetted agency profiles and domains, in addition to inner server names. Because the certificates are issued from non publicly trusted root certificates roots which are not allotted by the browsers and operating system vendors, the certificates aren’t constrained by the baseline necessities. Flexible key types/hashing algorithms: IntranetSSL helps legacy, present and future functions with a wide range of key types and hashing algorithms. IntranetSSL is on the market under three numerous hierarchies. The RSA 2048/SHA 1 hierarchy helps legacy SHA 1 only purposes which can’t be easily updated to support SHA 256 in keeping with the BR SHA 1 deprecation schedule, the RSA 2048/SHA 256 hierarchy is used for cutting-edge most typical servers and browsers and the SHA256ECDSA hierarchy with ECC P 256 keys can be used for the following day’s maximum defense commercial enterprise purposes.
All alternatives are available to all IntranetSSL customers.
