Using web service on HTTPS self-signed certificate

In my project I need to connect to an intra-net web service
but we need SSL connection between the two machines.

Because this is an intra-net site the certificate of the web
service might be a self-signed certificate.

The web service and the web page that loads my Flex
application resides on the same web server (tomcat) so when I load
the web page of the application with HTTPS I been asked to confirm
the certificate, I confirm it but this confirmation does not apply
on the Flex application (on Internet Explorer and Firefox).

I tried Google's Chrome and it actually asked me twice for
confirmation, one for the web page and one for the connection to
the web service so it worked great.



Is there a way to tell Flash player to accept also
self-signed certificates of is it entirely concern the browser and
Adobe guys can't do nothing about it?

In other words, is there a way to connect to a self-signed
certificates HTTPS web services from Adobe Flex???



Thanks.
