    I wonder if F-Secure could supply each Policy Manager Server with a proper (not self-signed) certificate, based on the unique customer number which was used to register them?

    The only task this certificate has is to encrypt the traffic, No authentication, no verification, no signing.
    There is no difference in accepting a (self-signed) certificate by own trust or by accepting thze certificate because a CA has signed it, which I trust.
    I you feel you only want to allow a CA signed certificate, you can still use your company CA and provide a certificate to the server, as long as you can ensure this will be trusted by windows.

    To me it sounds like a lot of hasle for what benefit?
