Description
This article describes how to install wildcard server certificates on FortiWLM without using the existing CSR created on the FortiWLM.
Certificates provide security assurance validated by a Certificate Authority (CA).
Server certificates are generated based on a specific Certificate Signing Request (CSR) and, along with the server certificate, get the entire chain of trust.
