I am planning a PGP deployment and need help with determining how to provide CA authorized certs for Universal Server.

Issue, Customer has multiple domians that they use for email.  Examples:

When PGP sends out the WebMessanger Notify message, the link included in message for each domain should point to its own domain and cannot display alternate domain in the link.

Example:  a user with an ecrypted message waiting from, must not have a link for

I can think of two ways to approach this:

1.  Use a seperate cert for each domain.  This begs question, how many certs can be assigned to a single Universal Server, and how are they assigned (per interface, IP, other)

2.  The other is to use aliases (cName) in DNS,  so that a link to actually point to,com.  The question this poses is, will cert for work for URL to

If there is a better way to handle this, please advise?

Thanks for your input

Easiest way to do this would be to purchase a certificate that lets you have alternate subject names. Essentially, this means you can have multiple domains assigned to a single certificate.

Go Daddy can issue these - Not sure about Verisign...

Bear in mind that if you have any Web Messenger customizations, then you can only have one per PGP Universal Cluster. I've seen some organizations use a "special" single domain just for Web Messenger only - ie.

Webmessenger messages for Banking, Mortgage & Finance would all go here.
