Goal

This document describes how to develop custom hostname verifier Subject Alternative Name (SAN) Certificates in WebLogic. This document only applies for WebLogic versions 10.3.3 till 10.3.5. Support for SAN (Subject Alternative Name) exists from Weblogic 10.3.6 & above. So there is no need to use Custom Hostname Verifier for Weblogic 10.3.6 & above. Refer to below MOS Note which has information on Support for SAN for WebLogic 10.3.6 and above.

<Note 1075505.1>: Support for SAN (Subject Alternative Name) for WebLogic Server SSL Certificates

For Weblogic versions 10.3.3 till 10.3.5, By default, the WebLogic Hostname Verifier class does not do hostname verification for SAN certificates.

By default, the WebLogic Hostname Verifier class does not do hostname verification for SAN certificates.

Note:

If you have more number of servers in your environment you can use single SAN certificate for all the servers instead of requesting seperate certificates for each and every machine with cn name.
