A server certificate is required for encrypted communication via TLS (Transport Layer Security).
A server certificate serves to uniquely identify a server. The certificate must be issued to the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) of the server by a trusted authority. The client must contact the server through the FQDN, not through an IP address.
If UCServer Web Services should be provided from "https://services.company.com/ws/", the certificate must also have been issued for the "services.company.com" FQDN.
The certificates used must be stored under Local Computer/Own Certificates and contain a private key. The Local Computer certificate store can be opened with the MMC console.
|You can receive an appropriate server certificate, for example, from Verisign or Thawte.
Before ordering a certificate, we recommend that you test this in advance. Many manufacturers provide test certificates with a limited test period.
