SSL Cert for patchpro.sun.com Invalid? Jun 04 2007 09:46PM

In our IDS logs, I saw some of our servers making some outgoing
connections over SSL wrapped HTTP. So, being curious, I decided to see
where they were going. The connections were going to patchpro.sun.com,
but the SSL certificate being used for this site is signed by Sun's
internal certificate authority and the site its self displays the
default Apache page. This happens for both the FQDN and the IP address
URL's:

https://192.18.108.39/
https://patchpro.sun.com/

Without digging to much deeper, my mind has begun wondering. Do systems
with support contracts download patches from this system over SSL
wrapped HTTP without a 3rd party validated certificate? Does the update
client even attempt to validate the certificate that is being presented
to it prior to downloading and installing patches? Perhaps Solaris
already has the Sun Microsystems Inc CA (Class B) certificate authority
public certificate installed and trusted
(https://www.sun.com/pki/ca/smicacert.html). Hmm.... I wonder. Guess I
need to build a box and screw around with it. Anyone else have any in
depth knowledge on this matter? Something seems a little weird here.
Generally you don't see default Apache pages sitting around on major
sites unless some kind of misconfiguration is happening.

Here is a copy (Base64 encoded) of the certificate currently being
presented by https://patchpro.sun.com:
