As a follow-up, IMO, the only valid use case for wild card certs is for self-contained private PKIs usedd internally with external certs for the exposed service endpoints. An example would be a private mini-CA dedicated (and trusted) only for inter-node internal connections within the cluster.

Dear MichaelKing1832
Thank you for your description and follow-up.
I'm so grateful to you 🙂
I'll learn and get experienced much more...

Hey MichaelKing1832,

Do you have a reference source link for your statement: "You really shouldn't mix/combine the security of completely different services (thats what a certificate is - service identity) in a single certificate."

In a blog post of mine I want to link to your comment here but, also link to an official document/RFC.

Thanks a lot - and thanks heddi.nabbisen for this post!
