i am doing some changes to an application that had a very strange authentication system. for some reason the previous developer has a system where after the user/pass is authenticated, it generates a self-signed ssl certificate specifically for that user and tries to configure the client browser to use that certificate.
yes, that means if 100 people are on the server at once, the server is maintaining a different ssl cert for each user. obviously this isnt working very well.
i am getting authorization to strip this system out and simply deploy the app on a server with a certificate. my question is i have 3 years of users that have these self signed certificates installed on their browsers. if i move this to another server with a standard certificate am i going to run into any problems with these existing users?
