Need to Import a Trusted Site Certificate into Internet Explorer

5 posts in this topic

I have a valid certificate that I need to have AutoIt register in Internet Explorer.

It appears I need to register it in the following areas:

Internet Options > Content > Certificates > Personal

Internet Options > Content > Certificates > Intermediate Certification Authorities

Internet Options > Content > Certificates > Trusted Root Certification Authorities

Internet Options > Content > Certificates > Trusted Publishers

I have no idea how to go about this...I would greatly appreciate any examples.

It can be, and has been done, but I am hesitant to give that out since there are far more nefarious reasons to do this than good.

If you have a valid need for this, I would start looking at Microsoft's support site and make sure you understand how the certificates work as well as how to import them.

Your blanket registration need, as stated above, leaves me worried that you either don't understand certificates, or have less than benevolent purposes.

Fair enough.

I assure you this is on the up and up. My client has drug testing machines that use Microsoft XP as an OS. They have recently changed from using the Microsoft JVM to the Sun JVM. I have the applets rebuilt and modified the code appropriately. My issue is that they need to do a mass deploy of the installation to all of their remote sites. We chose AutoIt to do all of the Java Install and had to modify several registry settings to not AutoUpdate etc. The last problem they are having is that the clinics are receiving a dialog box promting them to select a certificate, which they have, but they are concerned that the clinic technicians will not know what to do.

So my thought was to, as part of the install, import their key onto the machine, which should eliminate prompting the user. I have tried researching this, but I am comping up empty.

Would it be possible to email me and we can discuss it? I can give you personal information regarding the useage.

I'll send you an email tonight. If you can send me your code for what you are doing for me to review, I will consider helping you out.

You understand the major security issues this could bring up.

rsh,

I agree with willichan. This sort of thing should not be explained in open forum.

If he is happy to help you privately that is his decision. If not, please do not start another thread on the same subject. :)
