These two options will prevent disclosure in many scenarios but I don't
think it will avoid the problem in a common scenario (internal hosts use
a valid FQDN and a valid cert).
IP address and hostname (and cert.) of intranet-server1.example.com
using a valid certificate *.example.com will be published even if the
first two options in the "advanced options" are enabled. Is that correct?
In such scenarios I'm not worried about the certificate being submitted
but the hostname and IP address (domain and server_ip arguments).
I'm not sure if I understand "private DNS domains" correct.
"[x] Do not check/submit certificates for private DNS domains"
Are private DNS domains just non-existing TLDs? Something like
