We are pleased to announce that Subject Alternative Name (SAN) and Wildcard Certificates are now certified with Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 when enabling TLS.
Note: We are currently in the process of certifying SAN and Wildcard Certificates with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2. Monitor or subscribe to this blog for the latest in Oracle E-Business Suite technology certification announcements.
The use of the SAN field in a certificate request (CSR) allows you to specify multiple host names to be protected by a single public key certificate. Use of SAN will also allow for using a single certificate for multiple domains.
A Wildcard Certificate is a public key certificate which can be used with multiple sub-domains of a domain.
Note: The latest releases of some browsers (e.g., Google Chrome) now require a SAN extension. Check your browser to determine if SAN is required.
In the CSR, you may use the subjectAltName value and optionally use the wildcard character in the SAN field.
subjectAltName = DNS:www.example.com,DNS:example.com
subjectAltName = DNS:*.example.com
If you have already enabled TLS, you may need to redo your CSR using the SAN field. Check with your CA regarding their specific requirements for adding SAN. If you have not enabled TLS, simply follow the instructions for enabling TLS using the SAN field accordingly.
Note: We highly recommend that all customers migrate to TLS. If you have not already migrated to TLS, please do so as soon as possible.
