Redirecting one SSL domain/site to another SSL domain/site that do not share a common namespace

Hi All,

I am not a web developer, just a systems administrator.  I have a client using IIS 6.0 to host a secure website with SSL/TLS encryption.

My question is this- is there any way to have the following setup:

1 certificate with the following common name: web.domain.com and two web sites that users can go to in their web browsers without a certificate warning popping up:

site 1: web.domain.com
site 2: web.domain2.com

Is there some magic that can be done to redirect the user from web.domain2.com to web.domain.com without web.domain2.com on the certificate and not have the user's browser throw a certificate error for web.domain2.com?

From a security perspective this seems shady, but I am wondering if it is technically possible.

Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Jon

You would need to have a valid certificate for both.  As you said it can be very misleading.

What you CAN do though is have a wildcard cert.

That would allow for

web.domain.com and
web2.domain.com

with the same cert.
