I'm absolutely new to this topic of ssl certificates, so please be patient with me.
My task is to install an AS2 communication with some business partner. Therefore we need message signing and encryption. Some communication partners are accepting self created certificates, which is a bit curious, since they cannot be sure, that I am the one, who I pretend to be.
Nevertheless, I want to purchase a ssl certificate from a CA, e.g. godaddy. Now here is the question.
Can I use any certificate, which I can purchase from godaddy, to sign and encrypt the AS2 messages?
I didn't find anything about this combined with AS2, so I've to ask. Perhaps, it's not a matter of the technology used. Since, I really want to understand ssl certificates a reference to an article or something similar, would be highly appreciated. Well a short "Yes" or "No" would also be fine.
If it's not possible, which requirements on a ssl certificate must be met?
