Virtual Storage Console: Implementing Wildcard certificates

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • Virtual Storage Console (VSC) 7.x
  • Virtual Storage Console (VSC) 9.x


This article provides instructions on replacing Virtual Storage Console's self-signed certificate with a "wildcard" CA (certificate authority) certificate and key.  Wildcard certificates differ from conventional certificates in that:

  • wildcard certificates can be used with multiple sub-domains of a domain
  • wildcard certificates typically come packaged with a private key and a signed leaf certificate
  • wildcard certificates will be imported into VSC's keystore and will replace any existing key pair
