Comment(by ekendall):

 I am also experiencing this problem. In my case the WebDAV server's
 certificate is not self-signed, but is signed by an intermediate CA - one
 that was signed by a widely-trusted CA.

 Adding the signing CA to my keychain doesn't help, nor does the
 "acceptAnyCertificate true" workaround. I have tried both 3.3b3 and the
 latest nightly build.

 From what I can tell, the problem comes when trying to follow an HTTP
 redirect. Cyberduck successfully connects to port 443, negotiates a TLS
 connection, and sends a PROPFIND for the given path. However, since
 Cyberduck omits the trailing slash from its PROPFIND request, the remote
 web server sends a 301 redirect to the same path but with the trailing
 slash added. It's at that point that Cyberduck freaks out. Possibly fixing
 Cyberduck to include a trailing slash on WebDAV requests would work around
 the problem.
