Hi Experts,

We are having a product that is capable of doing Backups and migration. We are trying to find a way to apply SSL certification.

[Problem]
The product installed on the centos machine and we are trying to access it via IP.We already tried to generate an SSL certificate using certbot provided by Let’ encrypt but it fails to generate the certificate for IP address. So is there a way to generate an SSL certificate using local/public Ip address?

As a product, we don’t have a fixed domain name for that. Is there any way that I can apply one SSL certificate to multiple Ip addresses?

Thanks

Hi @akashtiwari16,

It entirely depends upon the Certificate Authority who issuing a certificate.

As far as Let’s Encrypt CA, they won’t issue TLS certificate on public IP address.

If you manage to find a Certificate Authority that can issue an SSL for one IP address, they might be able to issue it for multiple ones, it can be directly involved in the SANs of the certificate.
