Issue/Introduction

We're running the Internet Explorer browser, this one returns error : 

  DLG_FLAGS_SEC_CERT_CN_INVALID 

The hostname in the website's security certificate differs from the 
website we are trying to visit. 

This happens when we're accessing .mydomain.com url as : 

https://mymachine.mydomain.com/affwebservices/public/saml2sso 

when the certificate is for another domain, in this case
.myotherdomain.com. This is why Internet Explorer reports the error.

We want to know how replace the default certificates with the new one
for *.mydomain.com ?

Environment
