Farm administrators can configure whether or not the crawler ignores Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate name warnings that occur when the SSL certificate name does not exactly match the name that was expected. We recommend that you configure the crawler to ignore SSL certificate warnings only if you trust that all sites you crawl using SSL are legitimate. Note that SSL certificate warnings are not ignored, by default.
You must be a farm administrator to complete this procedure.
