Valid certifcate, but "ssl_error_bad_cert_domain"

Posted

I have a SSL web-server xxx.yyy with a valid certificate that is signed by a CA known to Firefox.

When I access "https://xxx.yyy" everything is fine. When I access "https://xxx.yyy/some_page", I get the "This Connection is Untrusted" dialog, which tells me:

Technical Details xxx.yyy uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is only valid for @subject_cn@ (Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain)

When I then try to add an exception, after some seconds it tells me: "Valid certificate: This site provides valid, certified identification. There is no need to add an exception".  And the "Confirm Security Exception" button stays greyed out.
Now I am stuck .... :-(

Thanks in advance

Question owner

I am suspecting the "@subject_cn@" wants to tell me something. Why doesn't it show the CN of the certificate (xxx.yyy)?

Just some more info: the SSL server is on a different network, behind a Socks5 proxy (firefox) configured to do DNS lookups. Maybe this is related...

Helpful Reply

Some more info. The proxy configuration is not the problem. It might be that the certificate has a problem after all.

When inspecting the certificate with openssl, it shows;

> X509v3 Subject Alternative Name: > DNS:@subject_cn@, email:user@zzz.yyy

Is that a syntax recognized by firefox? Is that valid at all?
