Certificates requirements: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn151311.aspx Also previous: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd807040(v=ws.10).aspx . In general a standard SSL certificate will be sufficient and you can use the same certificate for token signing and SSL communications (if acceptable by your security policy).

Certificate Requirements for Federation Server Proxies: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd807054%28WS.10%29.aspx

Federation server proxies are usually exposed to computers on the Internet that are not included in your enterprise public key infrastructure (PKI). Therefore, use a server authentication certificate that is issued by a public (third-party) certification authority (CA), for example, VeriSign or Comodo. When you have a federation server proxy farm, all federation server proxy computers must use the same server authentication certificate. It is important to verify that the subject name in the server authentication certificate matches the Federation Service name value that is specified in the AD FS 2.1 Management snap-in. To locate this value, open the snap-in, right-click Service, click Edit Federation Service Properties, and then find the value in Federation Service name text box. Note: Client authentication certificates are not required for AD FS 2.0 federation server proxies.
