SAN and Wildcard Certificates Certified with EBS 12.1

Elke Phelps
Product Management Director

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.

What are SAN and Wildcard Certificates?

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.

How do you deploy SAN or Wildcard Certificates?

In the CSR, you may use the subjectAltName value and optionally use the wildcard character in the SAN field.

  • Example 1: SAN field entry for the CSR:

subjectAltName = DNS:www.example.com,DNS:example.com

  • Example 2: SAN field entry with a wildcard for the CSR:

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.

    Hi Elke,

    GDPR requires us to encrypt data in transit. At this moment, the lack of support on EBS 12.2 for wildcard certificates makes HTTPS enabling a very expensive exercise (certificate per server). GDPR has become active today. I can imagine a lot of European customers are waiting for wildcard certificates to be available.

    Regards,

    Erwin
