Using wildcard cert

L0 Member

Being smart we thought it best to use a wildcard cert as we were going to be setting up about a half dozen SSL certs and various domains, that seem to be ever expanding.

One place we wish to use is on our PAN device for VPN access.

but as i go to import it, it requires a passphrase, something we never set up, and going thru the CSR process, on the device itself or elsewhere, and thru the process with godaddy there is no place to set this. 

Anyway around this, what am i missing?  Certs are not our specialty, i feel i am missing something here very basic.cer

Hi...Passphrase is like the key/password to read the private cert.   During the importing & exporting of the cert private key, it should have prompted you to enter a password or PEM challenge.  This is the passphrase.

Thanks.
