SSL certificate of a subdomain with an untrusted root certificate


The certificate for {Subdomain.Name} is signed by an untrusted root certificate authority (CA). Certificates authenticate hostnames by a chain of trust, stemming from known, universally agreed upon, Certificate Authorities (CA). In the case of an untrusted CA, the validity of the certificate can not be validated. This means a user could not distinguish access to the correct website and a fake one and opens users of this website to the risk of an MITM attack
