Hi, sure

Here is the procedure
https://wiki.splunk.com/Community:SplunkWeb_SSL_3rdPartyCA

But the main thing is that you first have to generate the .key before get the pfx in the procedure that i posted.

Hope i help you

So, the .key file is generated from splunk server , and the pem file is my wildcard certificate?

Hi,

no.
1.- you generate the .key
2.- with the key you generate a certificate request .cer
3.- your company CA sign your .cer and give you de public CA and a certificate .pem
Then you configure splunk. 🙂

Hi
As i say, we already have a wildcard certificate from a 3rd party provider.

So,
you should have also the key of the certificate. How they generate this certificate?
