Private (self-signed) certificates
If a private certificate is installed on the remote gateway, install the root certificate of the organization’s certificate authority on the user device to access Citrix resources successfully using Citrix Workspace app for Windows (Store).
If the remote gateway’s certificate is not verified during connection (because the root certificate is not included in the local keystore), an untrusted certificate warning appears. If you choose to continue with the warning, the apps are displayed but they might not launch.
For domain-joined computers, you can use a Group Policy Object administrative template to distribute and trust CA certificates.
For non-domain joined computers, you can create a custom install package to distribute and install the CA certificate.
Wildcard certificates are used on a server within the same domain.
Citrix Workspace app for Windows (Store) supports wildcard certificates; however, they must be used in accordance with your organization’s security policy. In practice, an alternative is a certificate that contains the list of server names with Subject Alternative Name (SAN) extension. These certificates are issued both by private and public certificate authorities.
Intermediate certificates and Citrix Gateway
If your certificate chain includes an intermediate certificate, append the intermediate to the Citrix Gateway server certificate. For more information, see Configuring Intermediate Certificates.
