Multiple Atlassian applications on one host using proxy, SSL and SAN certificate

If we have multiple atlassian applications on one host and Apache with mod_proxy in front.

The idea is that communication to Apache is SSL https. SSL stops at apache and it is http between Apache and tomcat for applications. So there is a virtual host for each application. 

The DNS entires look something like this:

The question is. Is it possible to use a single SAN certificate at Apache virtual host level? I am not familiar with SAN certificates.

Just add a virtualhost for each application.

Preferably you should use a separate configuration file for the SSL config:

In each virtualhost include the ssl config like this:

Include conf.d/

In the include file add something like:

SSLEngine on
SSLProtocol all -SSLv2 -SSLv3
SSLHonorCipherOrder On
SSLCertificateFile /etc/pki/tls/certs/
SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/pki/tls/private/
SSLCertificateChainFile /etc/pki/tls/certs/example-ca.crt
