Java Security Warning

I have installed a web based reporting suite (SAP Business Objects) that has JAVA installation as a pre-requisite.  Whilst the suite is working correctly, I am getting a JAVA warning every time I run a report.

First I get the error re Unknown publishers and I click on I Accept checkbox and Run and then I get a follow up warning asking to Allow Access to following applications.

I am using Internet Explorer and added http://localhost to the trusted sites list but this doesn't make a difference.

Errors attached.

I am using latest version of JAVA (Java 7) downloaded a few weeks ago from the Java website.

First error
Second error
Many thanks

I use an applet and had to wait for the publisher to update their side so the jar files contain a certificate.  I am not a java developer, just a user.   The product I use cites these articles

Is your application up to date?  I think you need to contact the publisher of your application.
You will get the 'unknown effect' if the code is signed with a cert that has not been properly certified by a CA. That usually means a self-signed cert has been used. The publisher will have to get a proper cert

I guess you are using SSL to communicate with web based reporting suite (SAP Business Objects).
Hence you need to add the appropriate certificate inside JDK's cacerts file using keytool  (JDK tool).
Cacerts file located at Java\jre6\lib\security\cacerts.
keytool is available at Java\jre6\bin location
Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

Hi there,

Closing post as I need more time to investigate but it certainly seems to be more along the lines of what you mentioned Scott - i.e. my colleagues are referring to using an earlier patch of Java so I believe this particular patch is not supported.  This doesn't in my view have anything to do with SSL or certificates from what I can see.

It is not certificates on your server, the java app requires it's own cert the publisher of the app has to have.  However, I believe you have to use ssl on your webserver.  Mine forces ssl and I have not tried it on http.

Best of luck!
What has ssl to do with this - the url clearly shows http is the protocol..?
