  • Hi @samaj

    Thank you for visiting SonicWall Community.

    You should get a webserver certificate from any certificate authority like GoDaddy, VeriSign, Thawte, etc,., Take a look at the below web-link for instructions on Certificate obtaining process in accordance with SonicWall.

    Hope this helps.

    a commercial certificate does not make your installation any safer, technically there is no difference (encryption-wise speaking) between a commercial issued cert (with a private key) or a self-signed cert (with the exact same private key for example).

    The only knowledgeable difference is how the browser is handling the connection and throwing warnings/errors.

    I'am a big fan of running an internal CA issueing the certs I need.

    Having Management open on the WAN interface is a constant threat and if possible should be limited to well known addresses if possible.

    As always, just my € .02
