Good Afternoon -
I've got a quick question for something annoying which I've briefly tried to resolve, but never been able to find out how (if possible.)
On my home "server" (Win7x64), I host many different services. The ones which are web-based are all set up to use SSL only for security purposes obviously. I also primarially use Google Chrome to access these services both locally and remotely.
Each time I browse to any of the SSL services, I get the red warning screen in Chrome saying "This site's security certificate is not trusted."
After choosing to accept, I must then enter my credentials for the service.
For my personal hardware, I don't want the cert warning to appear - especially when running the web browser on box local to the service. Ideally, it would be nice to not have to enter the credentials, either, but am not trying to be too picky. Obviously, once I accept the certificate and enter credentials once, I don't have to the rest of the time I keep Chrome open, but want to be able to bypass every time - just on my hardware.
What I've Tried to Resolve Issue
1. At the warning screen in Chrome, I've tried to find an option to import the certificate so I may choose to import it into the Trusted Root store. Can't find one.
2. Searched the service's folder for a cert file. Found one in a couple of them. Opened certificate authority for my local box and imported them into Trusted Root. For the services I found them for, I'm still prompted, though - no change.
3. I use LastPass for personal sites. It's really good at trying to grab entered credentials when detected, but doesn't do so for SSL it seems. Perhaps LastPass binary will?
That's about it - think I'm going to try to access services via IE and see if I can import. If works, hopefully will then work in Chrome, too. Surely, there's a Chrome setting in a sort of about:config which will allow bypassing that screen globally as an alternative. Just an idea.
Immediately after posting the above, I loaded the same URL (I'm currently remote to server) in Internet Explorer (10) where of course I was met with a similar warning
I then tried the additional following things to resolve
4. Chose to "Install Certificate" in store determined Automatically
5. Chose to "Install Certificate" into Trusted Root, Trusted Authority, and Personal stores (each via separate process)
6. After reading TechNet post, opened IE "As Admin" and re-performed steps 4 & 5
After all of that - still - no change and I get the same results in Chrome as well as IE.
Any Suggestions? Thanks!
