I am using a Nokia Lumia 800 with WinPho 7.5 to aid the development of our website. Currently, we have a valid VeriSign Class 3 Extended Validation certificate, which supports two domains:

m.direct-travel.co.uk (not live)

When I navigate to a secure URL on www.direct-travel.co.uk, IE Mobile complains about the SSL:

"It looks like the security certificate wasn't issued by a trusted certificate authority."

Certificate details:

Issued to: www.direct-travel.co.uk
Issued by: VeriSign Class 3 Extended Validation SSL SC CA
Valid from 24/01/2011 to 24/01/2013

It also has a SAN for our other domain:

Subject Alternative Name: DNS Name=m.direct-travel.co.uk
                          DNS Name=www.direct-travel.co.uk

Are there any known issues with WinPho / IE9 Mobile when using Extended Validation certificates? Are there any fixes to the issues?

I can't really just manually add the certificate to the cert store on the phone, as real customers would encounter these same issues, so I need to find a solution that just works by default.

    Maybe you should ask this on stackoverflow. To me it is more a dev orientated question – Sascha Jul 13 '12 at 11:47
  • Have you checked your site configuration? This is worth a shot: ssllabs.com/ssltest/index.html – paradroid Jul 13 '12 at 13:02
  • @paradroid - Thanks, that site helped me figure this issue out, our site is not performing a redirect from .domain to www.domain, which does work on desktop class browsers, but not on mobile browsers. – Matthew Abbott Jul 13 '12 at 16:25
  • Facing the same issue Please provide the Redirection rule which you use in you on web server to resolve the issue? Thanks AK – user622 Sep 19 '12 at 11:09

This was due to our web server not performing an initial redirect from a .domain through to our www.domain.
