I'll assume that these are correct:

Are you using a self-signed SSL certificate or something like that? I
don't recognize this particular message, but it could be due to a
self-signed certificate, or if the server is using one of those
new-fangled EV certs (which require not one but /two/ intermediate certs).

That doesn't look good. ^^^^

Can you post more of your server.xml configuration? I'm suspicious about
that NULL up there. Also, which exact version of TC 6.x are you using?
