Godaddy SSL Wildcard Certificate

Hello there, I´m trying to use my godaddy wildcard ssl on elk stack but for some reason is not working. Can someone point me to the right direction? Follow my config: true certs/server.key certs/server.crt [ "certs/server_bundle-g2-g1.crt" ] true certs/server.key certs/server.crt certs/server_bundle-g2-g1.crt

And this is the message I´m geeting:

[WARN ][o.e.h.AbstractHttpServerTransport] [elk] caught exception while handling client http traffic, closing connection Netty4HttpChannel{localAddress=/, remoteAddress=/}
io.netty.handler.codec.DecoderException: Received fatal alert: bad_certificate

PS: When I donwload the certificate from godaddy, I receive this:


@warkolm Can you please help me on that? It looks like the instructions for the certificate on elastic page focus only on self-certificate.

Thanks for the attention.

Please don't ping people directly, these forums do not offer any guarantees or commitments. Please be patient in waiting for your answer.

Received fatal alert: bad_certificate

An alert in SSL terms is a message from the other side of the connection. A fatal alert means that the other party is going to terminate the connection.

In this case, the HTTP client at remoteAddress=/ is saying that it doesn't like your certificate.
I can only guess why that is - the bad_certificate alert doesn't provide any specifics. There's a chance if you look at what is running on there may be more detailed information in the logs.

If I had to guess, then I'd say that the client on that address is connecting to your node using an address (hostname/IP) that is not covered by your wildcard certificate.
