For our gradebook application, we use a web interface program that relies on java. The first time that a user visits the website, a Security box opens and prompts the user to run the application or cancel. The Always trust content from this publisher box is checked by default. Is there anyway to suppress this security box and have the application trusted by default?

This is the default security configuration for Java on IE.  AFAIK, there is no way around it without editing the local computer's security policy.  Sorry.

The best way I have found to automatically accept a cert is to import the cert in Control Panel -> Java -> Security -> Certificates.
Once Imported, the file trusted.certs in C:\Documents and Settings\%userprofile%\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\security is updated as trusted.
I have copied this file to target machines with success. The question is if you have multiple certs or unique groups of people that have their own certs it could get sticky unless there is a way to append to the existing trusted.certs file. In my case, I didn't have any so it worked out.
