 The Amazon SSL certificate is a wildcard certificate for
 '*.s3.amazonaws.com'. As we have a bucket 'cyberduck.ch' this leads to a
 hostname with an additional level -> 'cyberduck.ch.s3.amazonaws.com'.
 According to the memo [http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2818.txt RFC2818] this
 identity does not match the certificate. Section 3.1 says:

   If more than one identity of a given type is present in
   the certificate (e.g., more than one dNSName name, a match in any one
   of the set is considered acceptable.) Names may contain the wildcard
   character * which is considered to match any single domain name
   component or component fragment. E.g., *.a.com matches foo.a.com but
   not bar.foo.a.com. f*.com matches foo.com but not bar.com.

 To prevent the warning page we should choose a different bucket or we
 don't use SSL for distribution anymore. The link you got is also valid
 with http:// instead of https://.
