Vendor hosting a Web App in azure, is asking for a PFX certificate

Michael J. Smith 1 Reputation point

We have a vendor that hosts the Web App Intelledoc's for us. Recent changes from Google have been causing the site to get flagged as "unsafe" - "Warning Deceptive Site ahead".

The vendor has asked us to provide them a PFX certificate for subdomains to essentially: "have these sites validated by the customer by incorporating them into the customers internet domain. "

However, I have a great many reservations about doing this, as I've been told to NEVER give a 3rd party a PFX cert.
I know you can use PFX certs with Azure Web Apps, but that's presuming you're using them in your environment, not giving them to someone else's azure environment.

1: Am I correct in being resistant to this suggestion?
2: If there another way to accomplish the same objective without giving them a PFX cert?

Apologies, but I just don't deal with certificates very often. Perhaps once every year or two??

    Thanks for reply! If your app has no certificate for the selected custom domain, then you have following lists of options for adding certificates in Azure App Service.
