Are you suggesting that Red Hat is using a self-signed
certificate, this is not some prima donna called Craig
from Azapple (who is full of himself) this is a global 
corporation we are talking about.

I have no intention of trusting a self-signed cert from
a big corp.

I would suggest you dismount from your high horse because
the common name on the server doees not match the cert its 
also a problem on IIS http://support.microsoft.com/kb/813618
