Yes, however we are talking about server here, so I'm not sure if your suggestion applies.

It is connected with SSL certificates.
It could be that there is a problem with one of the certificates or someone is having a go at your system.

You can stop the entries I believe, read this thread on Technet Forums:
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winserverDS/thread/4c5430f5-43f6-41b4-97d3-03cfb3efa70b

This thread at Technet also goes over the common causes.

I hate just handing out threads elsewhere, but as this is a common problem but without a single answer, it is the best way forward  so you can see what others have tried.
