Google Chrome

Error: The site's security certificate is not trusted!

Resolution:

  1. When the error occurs, click Proceed Anyway.
  2. In the address bar, click the lock icon to view the site information.
  3. On the Connections tab, click Certificate Information.
  4. On the Details tab, click Copy to File…
  5. Click Next.
  6. Select DER encoded binary X.509 (.CER), and click Next.
  7. Enter a file name. By default Chrome saves the certificate in a hidden file in \Users\username\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Applications\... 
  8. If you do not want to make hidden files visible, browse to a different location to save the certificate.
  9. Click Next.
  10. Check the location of the certificate, and click Finish.
  11. Add the exported certificate to Trusted Root Certification Authorities.

    Both Chrome and Internet Explorer use the Trusted Root Certification Authorities store when verifying certificates. If you have performed the steps to install the certificate for either Internet Explorer or Chrome, you do not have to perform the same steps again to use either browser.
