comment Blocking Chinese IP addresses
A good search phrase is "geoip blocking" in whatever search engine you prefer. You may also want to look at "fail2ban".

comment Understanding the signing and verification process through a CA
Good answer. You might add tthat the server will usually need to present the intermediate certificates in order to provide a full chain back to a root certificate that is trusted by the client.

comment What certificates are needed for multi-level subdomains?
To answer your very last question - the browser will verify that the certificate matches the site you're on, and that it's issued by a trusted CA, and that it's valid at this point in time. Going from foo.com to bar.baz.foo.com won't trigger any warning, just as following a link from foo.com to bar.com won't. The browser does not care that there's a subdomain involved.

@JoelL Could be monitored - yes, absolutely. Is actively monitored - not necessarily.

And since you don't know, there's no way for anyone to answer your question. If you're using SSL, then it's less likely that someone would be able to see the contents of the page (though still not impossible, depending on their setup). Whether anyone actually does notice will depend on your company policy - which, again, nobody else can answer.
