Private (self-signed) certificates
If a private certificate is installed on the remote gateway, the root certificate for the organization's certificate authority must be installed on the user device to successfully access Citrix resources using Receiver.
Installing root certificates on user devices
For information about installing root certificates on user devices as well as configuring Web Interface for certificate use, see Secure Receiver communication.
Wildcard certificates are used in place of individual server certificates for any server within the same domain. Receiver for Windows supports wildcard certificates, however they should only be used in accordance with your organization's security policy. In practice, alternatives to wildcard certificates, such as a certificate containing the list of server names within the Subject Alternative Name (SAN) extension, could be considered. Such certificates can be issued by both private and public certificate authorities.
Intermediate certificates and the NetScaler Gateway
If your certificate chain includes an intermediate certificate, the intermediate certificate must be appended to the NetScaler Gateway server certificate. For information, see Configuring Intermediate Certificates.
