Hi All,

I want to issue three self signed certificates.

I know how to create them, but the users browsers recieve the following message;

There is a problem with this website's security certificate.

I need to surpress this message for these three sites.

No luck.
You'll always get that message, since these are self-signed certificates.
Get a SSL certificate from a trusted certification authority, and you're good to go.

Can I not add something to the trusted root authority certificate store?

The users' browsers will always see it's a self-signed certificate.
That's the point of using certificates. If it was that easy to bypass, it wouldn't do much good, would it?..

Having the user install the certificate is hardly by-passing the check.

This is for internal use only.  I noticed in IIS7 they have Domain Certificates.

Ha! Sorry about that, I didn't realized it was for internal use...
Yes, you can install the CA as a trusted root in client machines.
In IE, you click on "View Certificates" when the error appears and then follow the instructions.

Is it possible to install the certificate via group policy?

Yes, you can import certificates to machines via group policy.

Computer Configuration -> Policies -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Public Key Policies

For your instance, I would add the CA Root cert to Trusted Root Certification Authorities.
