Hi all,

I have a website with an SSL certificate that works on all browser except Safari.  I get the attached dialog.  What doesn't make sense is it identifies the cert as Apple iPhone Device CA and the date are from last year.  Also, the cert works fine on my iPad2.

Please help.

Thanks,

Rick

On my MacBook Pro, that cert is identified as a GeoTrust cert in Safari and Firefox.  On my PC, it appears that since Apple has abandoned Safari for Windows, your cert is maybe too new for it and it isn't recognized.  There isn't anything you can do about it since Apple will not update Safari for Windows anymore.

Yes.  If I have to support Windows Safari your way it will be a support nightmare.  The best way to do this is to tell people Safari on Windows is not supported.
