The grant is for the origin to which permission was granted.  The
details of the certificate do not matter at this level.

If you have a wildcard for *.example.com, that doesn't allow you to
have https://foo.example.com use persistent permissions for
https://www.example.com.  Nor would it allow
https://www.example.com:9000 to use the same permissions.
