Hi, I want to have all KSM communication over SSL, so need to implement at least one certificate. But I also might need to do it (if even possible?) for clients and their domains on my KMS server.

Are there 'good' and 'bad' certificates? Are the ones that GoDaddy sells for approx $30 just as good as the verisign ones? if not, why not?

Thanx in advance!

We just implemented and use a GeoTrust certificate. Never used the GoDaddy incarnation.

We have been using a GeoTrust certificate for around 4 months now without any problems. EV1servers.net offers GeoTrust certificates for $49.00/year, which is cheaper than purchasing directly from GeoTrust.

maybe a silly question, but do ssl certificates only apply to websites/webmail?
Currently I connect to KMS with IMAPS (imap+ssl) with OutlookExpress6, and every time I startup OE I get a dialog box:
Quote:

The server you are connected to is using a security certificate that could not be verified. A certificate chain processed, but terminated in a root certificate which is not trusted by the trust provider. Do you want to continue using this server?"

I just did a SSL certificate request with Thawte ($149, just like the original price of GeoTrust, I didn't go with EV1servers because they specifically stated not to give tech support) but haven't got it installed at the server yet. So I wonder: as soon as the cert *is* installed, does this make that OE message go away? (Or any other mail client)

Thanx,
dr.b

If you're only implementing SSL for secure client connections (webmail, pop3, smtp, imap) then just generate a certificate in the KMS administration console. Most browsers and email clients will allow your users to install this certificate the first time they establish a secure connection to your server, so it will be readily available and transparent to the user for subsequent use.

Then you've got SSL - for free.

Yes I know, but I want to have it more 'professional' looking, and telling clients to workaround that is not what I want, even though technically it's identical. That's a bit the frustration with SSL ....
