Certificate Requirements for Mobility

 

Topic Last Modified: 2011-11-14

If you deploy the mobility feature and support automatic discovery for mobile clients, you need to include certain subject alternative name entries on certificates to support secure connections from the mobile clients.

You need to include subject alternative name entries for automatic discovery on the following certificates:

  • Director pool

  • Front End pool

  • Reverse proxy

This section describes the subject alternative name entries that are required on your certificates for automatic discovery.

noteNote:
Reissuing certificates by using an internal certificate authority is typically a simple process, but adding multiple subject alternative name entries to public certificates used by the reverse proxy can be expensive. If you have many SIP domains, making the addition of subject alternative names very expensive, you can configure the reverse proxy to use HTTP for the initial Autodiscover Service request, instead of using HTTPS (the default configuration). For details, see Technical Requirements for Mobility.

Director Pool Certificate Requirements

Description Subject alternative name entry

Internal Autodiscover Service URL

SAN=lyncdiscoverinternal.<sipdomain>

External Autodiscover Service URL

SAN=lyncdiscover.<sipdomain>

noteNote:
Alternatively, you can use SAN=*.<sipdomain>

Front End Pool Certificate Requirements

Description Subject alternative name entry

Internal Autodiscover Service URL

SAN=lyncdiscoverinternal.<sipdomain>

External Autodiscover Service URL

SAN=lyncdiscover.<sipdomain>

noteNote:
Alternatively, you can use SAN=*.<sipdomain>

Reverse Proxy (Public CA) Certificate Requirements

Description Subject alternative name entry

External Autodiscover Service URL

SAN=lyncdiscover.<sipdomain>

noteNote:
You assign this certificate to the SSL Listener on the reverse proxy.
noteNote:
The Autodiscover Service also requires subject alternative names on the reverse proxy certificates for your external Web Services URL (for example, SAN=lyncwebextpool01.contoso.com).
