I am writing custom security software and need to design a better method for a name mismatch... where the server certificate doesn't match the address in the URL.

How should I visualize this to the end user?

    Can you give it some more context, some background, screen shots, wireframes etc.? What ideas do you have so far? – jazZRo May 7 '15 at 8:40

You could take inspiration from some web browsers: they show typically a green lock if the certificate is ok, or a red lock if the certificate is missing/invalid. Below is an example from Firefox.
