The certificates required for the internal edge interface can be issued by either a public certification authority (CA) or an internal CA. You can use an internal enterprise CA to help minimize the cost of certificates. If your organization has an internal CA deployed, the certificates for the internal edge should be issued by the internal CA. Using an internal enterprise CA for internal certificates can reduce the cost of certificates.
For a summary of certificate requirements for edge components, see Certificate Requirements for External User Access. For details about using a public CA to obtain certificates, see Request Certificates from a Public CA. For details about requesting, installing, and assigning certificates, see Set Up Edge Certificates.
