SSL certificates for and has been renewed for 1200 days.

These certificates are not signed by a real certificate authority: their purpose is not to confirm our identity but to provide you a way to be sure that and today are running on the same machine they were yesterday. Also, certificates are required for an https server to run, and https is a way to secure all the data transiting between your computer and our servers, like authentication information.

RE: gna! CA certificate? (posted by kemuri, Sun Feb 15 22:13:40 2004)

It's not really a problem. I mean, when you sign your CSR for, you use your own Certification Authority (CA) I presume. You do what Versign/Thawte does.

Well, the browsers ofcourse don't recognize you as a CA, but you can make them recognize by making your CA certificate (ca.cert or better ca.crt) available online.
This will let the browser not complain and ask for acknowledgement all the time.

Just put your ca.crt in webroot and surf to it with mozilla. Should work. Otherwise one can import it via the Options.

(see ofcoz)

It's just a thought :)
