The workaround is to add a blank binding with a certificate and then remove it, it can be added to any site, but we'd much enjoy seeing this issue no longer be present. Hi and thank you for your reply. It's IIS 8. There is another https binding on one of the sites that has SNI indicated.
I've just reproduced the issue on another server also running IIS 8. I'm using win-simple 1. One of the machines are domain joined, the other is not.
AD FS support for alternate hostname binding for certificate authentication
Can you post what the bindings were before and after? Feel free to change the domains if you don't want to list the actual ones. The certificate is only valid for www. After I've requested and received a certificate it looks like this:. What about your HTTP bindings? Letsencrypt-win-simple only creates them in a single cert store, the default is WebHosting if it is available, and Personal otherwise. If you only ran the app once then it looks like it created certs for 0.
I'm not sure of any way it would create a binding for 0. It specifically only uses hosts that have a hostname, and Let's Encrypt would fail to authorize any without valid public hostnames. No errors were thrown, and yes, you are correct, personal and web hosting are the difference, however I also attempted to make a change afterwards in the config that had win-simple put the certificates in the "personal" store.Back to tenable.

Below is what im running into I searched through these forums and found a similar issue listing this as a false positive, but that was back in Has anyone run into this? Is this actually a false positive? Does anyone have tips for remediating this issue?
Solution Purchase or generate a proper certificate for this service. Output The identities known by Nessus are : First Post! This one comes up for me regularly, it is a false positive. You need to enter the scan address as a valid domain that points to the box in question.
Say this is a web server called "web1" you would enter the scan address as " web1. This will still scan the server, while making sure that SSL is valid. The identities known by Nessus are : If there would be a reverse lookup record on this IP, Nessus would find the name of the device.
Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It only takes a minute to sign up. The task is to apply a certificate and host name to the one and only Site on this machine. The site's host headers need to be abc. IIS7 finds the cert as available, but won't allow the entry of a host name.
I've even deleted the default port 80 binding. Question: how can I set a host name for this site? Is it a matter of this cert being a wildcard cert? I understand that the SSL request comes into the web server, and the host header in the packet is encrypted. Update: The cert isn't part of the problem.
I've created a new Site on the machine, and when choosing https binding, the host name textbox is disabled. You can't do it from the UI, you have to do it from the command line. Here's a nice walk through of the process:. Just make sure the the 'friendly name' of the cert you are installing is the same as the multidomainname you have made for the cert.
The short answer is that each IP can only have one certificate bound to it, so the certificate binding is going to apply no matter what hostname is directed to that IP address. Being able to specify a hostname would imply that you can have multiple hostname and certificate combinations on the same IP address and port as you can with non-SSL entriesbut this is not the case, so the field is unavailable.
The more complete explanation is that SSL encrypts your traffic, and part of that traffic is the HTTP headers sent by the browser to the server. One of those headers would be the "Host" header which IIS uses to determine which site to load up with the request. Since the certificate needs to be loaded to establish the secure connection BEFORE the request headers are sent, IIS has to select the certificate based only upon the IP address and port number, leaving the "Host" header out in the cold as a factor in determining which site to load, so they don't let you enter one.
Here is an article which outlines the inner workings of the SSL connection in finer detail.
The SSLShopper answer did not work for me because it left the binding without the host header, and you couldn't remove that binding without breaking the connection to the certificate.
Here is the method I used to get it to work:. Please note that this answer assumes that your certificate has already been generated, added to the certificate store, and added to IIS. It also assumes you do not want any other bindings to your website besides the SSL one.
First, we need to gather some information. We need the hash, the application ID and the host name. Note: Appcmd.
Troubleshooting SSL related issues (Server Certificate)
You may need to be in that folder for this command to work. The accepted answer here is confusing and I don't think it's correct for the question. It shouldn't be the accepted answer.
I prefer to use the same friendly name as the wildcard domain, e. Since Windows 8 or Serveryou can type certlm.
On previous versions of windows you will need to do something slightly more convoluted:. In the main window, expand Certificates Local Computer then Personal then Certificates and you will be able to right-click the certificate, hit Properties where you can update the friendly name.
Actually, you can add a host header via the gui, but it depends on how the certificate is named Some machines won't let you edit the host name if the protocol is changed to https or after adding an SSL certificate. IIS can be grumpy at times. This Windows command will create a new binding with protocol "https", on port "", host name "subdomain.

Client Certificates troubleshooting will not be covered in this document. Server Certificates are meant for Server Authentication and we will be dealing only with Server Certificates in this document.
If the Client certificates section is set to "Require" and then you run into issues, then please don't refer this document. This is meant for troubleshooting SSL Server certificates issue only.
It is important to know that every certificate comprises of a public key used for encryption and a private key used for decryption. The private key is known only to the server. The first thing that has to be checked is whether the website is accessible over http. If it is not, there likely is a separate issue not covered here. You will need to have the website working on http first before continuing with this troubleshooter.
Now let's assume the website is accessible over http and we get the above error when trying to browse over https. The problem is seen because the SSL handshake failed and hence the error message was seen. There could be many reasons. We will follow a step-by-step approach to solve this problem. Check if the server certificate has the private key corresponding to it. Refer the below picture:. If private key is missing, then you need to get a certificate containing the private key, which is essentially a.
PFX file. There is a command that we could try to run in order to associate the private key with the certificate:. Note: 1a 1f 94 8b 21 a2 99 36 77 a8 8e b2 3f 42 8c 7e 47 e3 d1 33 is the thumbprint of the certificate.
Open the certificate and click on the details tab. Scroll down to find the thumbprint section. Select the thumbprint section and click on the text below. Below is a snapshot for your reference:. Note: This command doesn't succeed always. If this fails, then you need to get a certificate containing the private key from the CA. The file extension for a certificate containing private key is.
We went pass the first hurdle and now we have a server certificate containing the private key installed on the website. However, we still get the same error as above. The website is still not accessible over https.
Download X Install the tool and run it on the server. You have a private key that corresponds to this certificate but CryptAcquireCertificatePrivateKey failed. So let's try the below steps one by one:. All the private keys are stored within the machinekeys folder, so we need to ensure that we have necessary permissions.
If the permissions are in place and if the issue is still not fixed. Then it must be a problem with the certificate.

However something is happening that I can't figure out this time. When I view the certificate being served up from the IE browser: it shows the localhost cert issued to 'DevMachine' is being used and not the localhost issued to localhost 2 above which should resolve this issue.
Hence the name mismatch because 'DevMachine' does not match 'localhost'. Another point to make; my certificates have been added to 'Trusted Root Certification Authorities' so they both are trusted certificates.
I feel that I have covered my bases here yes I have seen this and this so please do not re-post. What am I missing here? I had a similar issue and had also gone through the checks you mentioned above for the site bindings. I ran the following netsh command. This showed me two SSL Certificate bindings. One on IP:Port 0. I opened CertMgr. You can also use it online. It does a realtime lookup so you don't have to worry whether or not your browser or intermediate server is caching something.
Obviously if this expiration date is wrong you probaly just exported the wrong certifcate to the filesystem so go and fix that first. If you are using the CCS then assuming this certutil command gives you the expected expiration date of your updated certificate you can proceed. For me this yielded the following.
You'll see it is bound to an IP and not my expected domain name. This is the problem.MuleSoft -- How to Host HTTPs API using SSL Certificate in Mule-4?
It seems that this for whatever reason I'm not sure takes precedence over the binding set in IIS that I just updated for example. I don't even know where this binding came from - I don't even have any SSL bindings on my default site but this server is a few years old and I think something just got corrupted and stuck. To be on the safe side you'll want to run the following comand first to be sure you're only deleting this one item:.
Now we've verified this is the 'bad' thumbprint, and expected single record we can delete it with this command:. Hopefully if you now go back to Digicert and re-run the command it will give you the expected certificate thumbprint.
You should check all SAN names if you have any just to be sure. Final note: If you're using the centralized certificate store and you're seeing erratic behavior trying to even determine if it is picking up your certificate from there or not don't worry - it's not your fault. It seems to sometimes pick up new files immediately, but cache old ones. If this happens, the cert served may be the one from the other site. Learn more.HTTP to same web address works fine.
It looks like some name resolution issue with port. Does the name resolution checks for the ports as well? I am so confused. As has been stated above if you can it the https port by IP and not by name that shows that the networking and proxies are working. What you have here is an Apache configuration issue. No, and clearly you didn't read what else was tested in the thread, because if it were an Apache configuration issue it'd allow the connection, not completely reject it.
It would sayor something along those lines, instead it's flat out refusing the connection, that's because he's got something in the way such as a proxy which is not allowing it either to properly look up the host name or not properly connect to the machine. So automatically, if it's simply rejecting the socket connection based on name, but not IP, it absolutely cannot be an Apache configuration issue.
If by "doesn't work" you mean it cannot connect, it's likely there's a NAT or something in the way and needs to be forwarded, assuming it's coming in from the outside. Also is standard HTTP by host name reachable? Some routers, depending on settings, won't let you route out and back in again, so from within the network one cannot try to connect back inside.
So if you're testing that way, it could be an issue. If you can reach via standard HTTP but not HTTPS then it's obviously a port forwarding issue or a firewall issue, and Windows comes with a firewall, so it's installed whether or not you want it to be unless someone seriously breaks somethingso check if it's enabled or disabled at all or for the NIC in question, sometimes it's not that obvious. If this is all within the network, be sure that the client can properly look up the host name nslookup via cmd and also make sure the browser doesn't have either an old address cached or no address at all cachedand in some cases, browsers such as IE have to be completely closed out and re-opened in order to even begin to test that issue.
So you also may want to test with another browser if you think it may be name resolution. I'd also double check the whole port availability thing and the software firewall. Look at the config of your virtual servers in the Apache control file.
I expect that you only have the ip specified, not the host name for https. Could there be some setting in NIC as well? I checked the W2K3 Server, no firewall at all. Just to be sure, i stopped the Anti Virus as well. I rebooted the server as well. No luck so far. Is there a proxy or anything?
If nslookup resolves to the appropriate IP address the same one that does work then it should be able to connect, but this does show this is related to name resolution.
Further, if it says the web page is unavailable in Chrome, see what the finer details of the error are, if it's a socket issue or something like that, then it isn't Apache's config at all. In fact, Apache's config in this instance shouldn't matter at all, because even if the VirtualHost is not setup properly, Apache will still take the connection.
Good point about the proxy, i have tried without any proxy as well. The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. So there is a proxy on your network? My guess is though the name resolution in browser is not working properly, either because name resolution on the system is not actually working properly, it's been cached from testing too much, or it's using the proxy to look up the host name.
There's no reason a local connection which works on IP should not work based on name, unless the name isn't correctly mapped to the IP or there's a proxy getting in the way. Then it's a browser issue, likely a proxy or something, because if the machine can properly look up the name and can connect to the machine, then it's a browser problem.
I imagine you've got a proxy issue or some other configuration problem. It doesn't really go via any proxy. From user PC to Webserver is 1 hop tracert. It may be internal, but is there a proxy set at all though?
The browser doesn't care whether or not the requested host is local, in fact it usually doesn't even know, some even use the proxies to look up the IP address to connect to. Then if you are using Virtual Servers with Apache, it compares the host name against the Virtual Server directive and if it matches responds.On many networks the local firewall policies might not allow traffic through non-standard ports like This is because you could not have different bindings for device authentication and user certificate authentication on the same host.
The default port is bound to receive device certificates and cannot be altered to support multiple binding in the same channel. The results were that smart card authentication would not work and users were unaware of what happened since there is no indication of what really happened. Now we support two modes, the first uses the same host i. The second used different hosts adfs. This will require an SSL certificate to support "certauth. This can be done at the time of the farm creation or later via PowerShell.
How to configure alternate host name binding for certificate authentication There are two ways that you can add the alternate host name binding for certificate authentication.
That is, it will automatically setup two different hosts sts. If the certificate does not contain a SAN, then you will see a warning telling you that certificate subject alternative names does not support certauth. See the screenshots below. The first one shows an installation where the certificate had a SAN and the second one shows a certificate that did not. You may also leave feedback directly on GitHub.
