certificate mismatch when viewing source files in FF3
Last modified: 2015-01-04 19:07:56 EST
Description of problem:
There is a certificate mismatch between the name of the subversion server and
the name in the certificate.
For example, when I perform a "svn info" command, I get back an HTTPS url as
$ svn info linux/common/pki-common.spec
Repository Root: https://pki-svn.fedora.redhat.com/svn/pki
Repository UUID: c9f7a03b-bd48-0410-a16d-cbbf54688b0b
Node Kind: file

That's fine. But when I go to that HTTPS url, I get an error page in FF3. The
error FF3 gives is:
Secure Connection Failed
pki-svn.fedora.redhat.com uses an invalid security certificate.
The certificate is not trusted because it is self signed.
The certificate is only valid for pki.fedoraproject.org.
(Error code: sec_error_ca_cert_invalid)
* This could be a problem with the server's configuration, or it could be
someone trying to impersonate the server.
* If you have connected to this server successfully in the past, the error may
be temporary, and you can try again later.
At a minimum, let's fix the naming problem in the cert. But ideally, we should
also make sure we have a cert that chains to a well known issuer.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Update: I re-checked out the source and the host-name error went away. (Thanks
So now the only problem is that it is a self-signed cert.
