Hi I was able to use AWS’ canned SSL cert on an AWS load balancer that listens for incoming https traffic on 443 and returns http on 80 (was not able to return https over 443 their documentation refers to nonexistent buttons)
when i go to my site loads fine and shows the https security green tag by the url.
however, when i go to my load balancer’s address, which looks like
I see a webpage that says
Your connection is not private Attackers might be trying to steal your information from load-balancer-xxxxxx.us-east-1.elb.amazonaws.com (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards). NET::ERR_CERT_COMMON_NAME_INVALID
i am wondering if this means my ssl and https communication over is not safe ? or what this error really means in terms of what i should be concerned about is the error due to the fact that the certified url for my site does not contain the domain *.amazonaws.com ?
if so should i consider making my ssl certificate for both my domain.com and *.amazonaws.com ?
