Getting Data In

Is it possible to use the same certificate for web UI access and data forwarding?

As in title, I was wondering if it is possible to use the same certificate on Heavy forwarders for access to the web UI and as a server cert for server forwarding.

looking at here: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.0.1/Security/Howtogetthird-partycertificates
and here: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.0.2/Security/Getthird-partycertificatesforSplunkWeb

The process for creating the CSRs is a bit different. In the web certificate the password is removed from the key before creating the CSR. would that make any difference on the final certificate? would I be able to use it for both functions? Is there something that I might need to be aware of?
