[Bug 4576] Error thrown when validating over SSL


           Summary: Error thrown when validating over SSL
           Product: CSSValidator
           Version: CSS Validator
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Other
        AssignedTo: ot@w3.org
        ReportedBy: blseal@gmail.com
         QAContact: www-validator-cvs@w3.org

When I use the validator to validate
<https://static.sourceforge.net/css/sfx.php?secure=1&amp;20061201-0758>, that
page is successfully retrieved, inspected and a result (not valid) is returned.
However, when I try to validate <https://addons.mozilla.org/css/thickbox.css>,
the validator responds with this error:
Target: https://addons.mozilla.org/css/thickbox.css

I/O Error: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building
failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to
find valid certification path to requested target

addons.mozilla.org seems to be using standard encryption (RC4 128bit), so I'm
guessing the validator doesn't have the right root certificate installed.
