Imported Certificate Problems - signing data with your private exchange key
Posted on 2004-08-04
We have a website that requires certificates. We have imported the certificate onto our system (windows 2000 SP4) at a client site (not within our domain). When the user gets in to use the application, the application works but they receive continuous messages (depending on what we do within the application), with a window titled Private Key Container and is an informational window stating 'signing data with your private exchange key' but does not ask for a password. We did have two certificates for the same site on the system, but have since removed one eventhough it did ask us which one we wanted to use for the site.
We have reviewed security settings for the internet, SSL on the web server but have not found the culprit. We still have not tested it on another system at the client site, that is happening later this week.
If anyone understands why we are receiveing this informational window we would greatly appreciate the feedback.
