Is it worth using Third Party Certs for a new 5520 setup

I'm setting up a new set of 5520's, and I'm wondering if its worth using third party certs for webadmin, webauth ect. Could anyone with experience with this let me know how things worked for them?

 

-Thanks

Hi Josh,

Its working for me...adding a 3rd party certificate to my WLC to allow guest users to access the login screen without getting a "trusted site" warning.

Hi

For webadmin, it's not necessary to use public cert (3rd party) as it'll be used only from admin laptop to manage the wlc.
However for guest portal it worth using public cert, then guest user won't get any certificate error when accessing the guest portal.

In few words, to webadmin portal and internal authentication (TLS), use internal certificates. For public portals like guest, use external cert (3rd party) to avoid certificates issue on the web page.

Thanks
