  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

The Amazon SSL certificate is a wildcard certificate for '*'. As we have a bucket '' this leads to a hostname with an additional level -> ''. According to the memo RFC2818 this identity does not match the certificate. Section 3.1 says:

... If more than one identity of a given type is present in the certificate (e.g., more than one dNSName name, a match in any one of the set is considered acceptable.) Names may contain the wildcard character * which is considered to match any single domain name component or component fragment. E.g., * matches but not f*.com matches but not ...

To prevent the warning page we should choose a different bucket or we don't use SSL for distribution anymore. The link you got is also valid with http:// instead of https://.
