Internal server names and reserved IP addresses are prohibited in publicly-trusted SSL Certificates. This means if enterprises want to continue to issue SSL with those prohibited names they need to use self-signed certificates or run their own CA.
GlobalSign provides a cost-effective alternative for this and other internal needs with IntranetSSL.
IntranetSSL – SSL/TLS Certicates from a managed non-public CA IntranetSSL
Certificates are issued using GlobalSign’s non-public CAs so the certificates can be configured in ways that are not permitted under public hierarchies which must comply with the CA/Browser Forum Baseline Requirements.
IntranetSSL Certificates are issued directly from GlobalSign’s Managed PKI Service, providing enterprises the same robust certificate lifecycle, user and billing management features as publicly-trusted SSL Certificates. Free inventory tools track and monitor all public and internal certificates, regardless of issuing CA.
