What kind of certificate do i need for the Do i need the same one as the, because this certificate are expensive (it's a extended certificate). Or a cheap certificate from godaddy will do the trick. This is another question do both certificates have to be signed by the same root provider and/or the same encryption key length (or it can be only 128 bits)?

By the sound of it you have a server that a client accesses with a valid security certificate, and some of the content loaded on to the page comes from a site that does not have an SSL certificate.

You will need to put the static content under an SSL protected page as well. This could be as simple as mirroring the content on your own server that has SSL already setup.

If this is not the case could you clarify your question?

You get it, i will clarify my question. My question is more specific on what kind of certificate do I need – Alexl Sep 17 '09 at 15:54
Any regular web certificate will work to get rid of the unencrypted content warnings. A certificate from godaddy will work fine (though I have personal reservations about there business practices, that isn't what your asking for ;) ) – TrueDuality Sep 18 '09 at 19:01

I got the answer,

Any ssl protocol do the trick. You only need one valid certificate as godaddy ones.
