Overview

SSL is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, an encryption technology that was created by Netscape. SSL certificates create an encrypted connection between a web server and a web browser, allowing for private information to be transmitted without the problems of eavesdropping, data tampering, or message forgery.

 

Types of SSL certificates and where they are used on Palo Alto Networks:

 

Self-Signed

(PAN)

Public CA

issued

Wildcard

Subject alt

name

Sub ordinate CA

(internal source)

Browser certificate errors:

Remember with SSL certificates, there are three things that are always checked inside of an SSL certificate:

  1. Certificate name matching the FQDN or IP address
  2. Is this from a Trusted CA?
  3. Is the certificate expired?

If these items are OK, then the certificate should be fine.
