Subject [users@httpd] double wild card ssl certificates
Date Fri, 03 Feb 2006 09:40:15 GMT
My company has a wild card SSL server certificate * .  However we 
need to use double wild card certificate *.*

Can I use * (which is a server certificate, signed by a trusted 
root CA) to sign the *.* ?

I have read elsewhere that I need an intermediate CA certificate.  Is this 
correct ?

Is there any limitation/restriction on the intermediate CA certificate ?  
What can I use it for?  Can I use the intermediate CA certificate to sign 
other certificates ?  I have read that an intermediate CA certificate can 
only be use to establish a chain for a server certificate which is signed by 
the same root CA.  Does not make much sense to me.  Can someone please 

Thank you!
