We have our cluster sitting behind an application gateway. We have a certificate from digicert for SSL on the app gateway. In order to not have to get another cert from digicert for the cluster would it be ok to use the app gateway certificate to secure the cluster? we are not doing SSL on the cluster other than for explorer but that's through the app gateway, otherwise we have the gateway offload SSL.

    You can do this but the traffic between the app gateway and service fabric will go through http protocol
    (not secured)

    Also make sure you are not exposing the service fabric service publicly.
