How to import a self signed certificate into Firefox from the windows store properly.

I am currently trying to get a wcf service that runs on the same machine as the browser that is making the request. Since the connection is between a browser and an application running on the same machine security was orginally not a concern and it seemed fine to leave the request on http. The first issue arrised when Firefox did not allow mixed content calls (The website making the requests uses https). I have the service converted fine to run with Chrome and IE in https, but not for Firefox due to its use of a seperate store.
For the windows store I created one CA cert which then issues the self signed cert which is then binded to a port I have the WCF service listening on (In my case this is: https://localhost:8502).
This all needs to be done progammatically so I can't manually Add an Exception (which does work).
If there was a way to use certutil (I am not very addept at using this tool at all) to add this exception it would be very helpful.
The other method I have tried is exporting the selof signed cert and then importing it. Using IIS I can only export the file as .pfx which I can't seem to import into the Servers tab in the certificates interface (I assume this is the right location for it since the exception adds it here). I extracted the certificate from the port through code and imported it to the store, but it does not seem have the extra column defining the port like the exception cert does (It does not work wither).
How do I do this correctly? Or is it even possible to have a self signed cert bypass all this? I only have it using self signed certs since the service is just running on localhost.

HI,
Adding an exception does work manually, but you would like to do this programmatically. This has more on the nSS functions [https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Projects/NSS/Certificate_Download_Specification]
I have not tried this you can add it to the file cert8.db if you can insert it into each profile you can access? (For example copy the file after you have manually added it?) that would overwrite any uniqueness however- not good for preserving data.
The best advice would come from the security mailing list or the esr mailing list, that helps enterprise environments.

  • How to use a self signed certificate in Firefox 33

    Unfortunatly https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1012765 does not provied a reasonable solution for version 33
    Is there realy no other option, to use own testsites and old embedded Web-Servers, than switching to chromium?

    Can you import the CA cert under “Your Certificates.”, delete the CA cert, switched to “Authorities”, re-imported the CA cert, and restarted Firefox.

  • How to successfully import ASA self-signed certificate?

    On ASA 9.1 i am trying to export an Identity certificate, self-signed certificate into p12 file so i can import it into laptop and used it for secure connection to ASA over ASDM.

  • How to use a self-signed certificate

    Hello,
    I am having some troubles understanding how to use a self-signed certificate. I have created one using Keychain Access -> Create Certificate but it never asked me for the private key and it never told me where the certificate is stored. How am I supposed to use it?
    Typically I would like to do two things:
    1) use the certificate to for example sign an email or other document so that the recipient can verify that it was really me. I understand the concept that they have to have my public key and use it to somehow decrypt something that I have encrypted with my private key. But where is my private key? As mentioned, the certificate creation process never at any point asked me to provide a private key.  An example using this process to sign an email would be really appreciated.
    2) I want to be able to decrypt a message that someone sends to me after encrypting it with my public key. Again, I need my private key, where is it? I was never asked to choose one!
    Please note that i am familiar with the whole process using openSSL ssh via command line, I just need to understand how to achieve the same thing using the certificate creation procedure provided via Keychain Access.
    In short, now thta I have created my certificate, how do I use it? Examples for dummies would be really appreciated
    Thanks  in advance

  • How-to install a self-signed certificate on Sony Ericcson W350

    I am a developer and I am writing a j2me application for a Sony Ericcson W350 phone which needs to be able to use the phones SMS capabilities.  I have a signed .jar and .jad file with a self-signed certificate.  However, the phone is still treating my application as an untrusted third party app.  I think this is occuring because my self-signed certificate isn't in the java certificate store on the phone. Is there a way to load my self-signed certificate into the java certificate store?  I have tried copying it over to the phone via bluetooth and usb and installing it through the filesystem, however there isn't an option to install the certificate when browsing to it from the phone's filesystem.  Any help would be much appricated.

    Deactivating existing Java certificates prevented me from installing the .jad file.  I accessed the phone's file system using both Sony PC Companion with USB and using the OS file browser over bluetooth.

  • How to renew a self signed certificate

    Hello,
    Can someone tell me how I can renew a self signed certificate ? I can't find the relevant option with the certadmin command.
    thx,
    Tom.

    Hi,
    thanks I had scanned through that document, but it doesn't tell you how to renew a self signed certificate. I went through all the options of the certadmin tool, and renewing a certificate is not one of them. So I guess it must be done manually via some pki binary somewhere on my system, but which one and how ?

  • Sign in to download from the App Store screen has the wrong Apple ID- grayed out. How can I change it?

    When I have a software update notification and I go to the 'Updates" tab of the App Store and click 'update',  the flash screen 'Sign in to download from the App Store comes up the the Apple ID is wrong and grayed out so I can't change it.  Where is the bogus Apple ID stored? How can I 'ungray' it to make it editable?
    I'm running Mavericks 10.9.4 on an IMAC 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5.

    You installed a hacked app, originally from the Mac App Store. It contains the receipt for a different app, downloaded using an account that you don't control. You need to identify and remove the hacked app.
    Important: The app you need to remove is not necessarily the one named in the App Store alert. For example, the App Store may prompt you to update "Angry Birds" or "Twitter," but the hacked app may be something else entirely. Don't make any assumptions about which app you're looking for. To find it, you must carry out a systematic search with Spotlight.
    1. Triple-click anywhere in the line of text below on this page to select it:
    kMDItemAppStoreHasReceipt=1
    Copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C.
    2. In the Finder, press command-F to open a search window, or select
              File ▹ Find
    from the menu bar. In the search window, select
              Search: This Mac
    from the row of tokens below the toolbar. Below that is a popup menu of search criteria, initially showing Kind. From that menu, select
              Other...
    A sheet will drop down. In that sheet, select
              Raw Query
    as the criterion, then click OK or press return.
    Now there will be a text box to the right of the menu of search criteria. That's where you enter the raw search query. Click in that box and paste the text you copied earlier by pressing command-V.
    4. The search window will now show all the App Store products that are installed. Compare those search results with the list of your purchases from the App Store. To see the complete list, you may need to unhide hidden purchases. If any apps were download from the App Store using other Apple ID accounts that you control, sign in to the store under each of those ID's and check the purchases.
    At least one of the apps in the Spotlight search results is not among your purchases in the App Store. Move each such item to the Trash, after quitting it if it's running. You may be prompted for your administrator password. Empty the Trash.
    Quit and relaunch the App Store. Test.
    If you find these instructions confusing, ask for an alternative method.

  • Why should I "Sign in to download from the App Store"

    Why does this pop up on my screen:  "Sign in to download from the App Store" when I am NOT trying to download an app or anything?  It interrupts my work, and looks questionable?

    second mouse wrote:
    Thank you thomas_r.  I did what you mentioned, and in System Preferences, it said:  "The App Store keeps OS X and apps from the App Store up to date."  I did not realize that OS X updates are now being done through the App Store, so I updated preferences so OS X updates will automatically download.  I hope now I do not get these sign-in messages, and my computer stays up to date!
    i have my App Store set so that nothing is automatically downloaded, and I have never gotten the type of popup you mentioned. Depending on your system, you could end up with unwanted upgrades by using the automatic setting. The App Store recently updated EVERY instance of Evernote on my Mac Pro, rendering it unusable on two io the drives. There are a few updates that you might not want at all, such as iTunes 12. Setting it on automatic gives you NO control.
    It is a fairly dumb updater. I was able to retrieve an earlier version of Evernote from a backup, but was not pleased at the behavior of the update process. Even Adobe's updaters aren't that bad.

  • Does anyone know how to use a self signed certificate with apple mail??

    Ive read about it in mail's help and tried to set it up according to it. Ive created a self-signed certificate but have no idea how to set it up as it would work with Mail so that i would be able to send signed messages. could anyone help me??

    Hello rado:
    Welcome to Apple discussions.
    I am assuming this is what you read:
    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=Mac/10.5/en/8916.html
    If you follow the instructions when you set up the certificate, you should be fine.
    Incidentally, most +"ordinary users"+ (like me) do not use this function. I am curious as to why you want to jump through hoops in your Mail application.

  • How to erase all self signed certificates and force Server to use Signed SSL

    I have been using a poorly managed combination of self-signed SSL certificates and a free one. I have purchased a good SSL from Digicert and am trying to configure the server to use it across the board. All of the services seem to be using it, but when I try to manage the server remotely, I seeing a self-signed certificate instead.
    I look under the system keychain in K-Access and there are several self signed certificates there (including the one that I am seeing when I try to remote manage).
    Can I replace those self-signed certs with the new one some how?

    Don't delete those.  However, you are on the right track.  Follow these steps to resolve.
    1:  Launch Keychain Access
    2:  Select the System Keychain
    3:  Find the com.apple.servermgrd IDENTITY PREFERENCE (looks like a contact card) and double click to open it
    4:  In the Preferred Certificate popup, change com.apple.servermgrd to your purchased certificate
    5:  Press Save Changes to save.
    6:  Reboot the server or kill the servermgrd process to restart the service.
    That should resolve your issue.

  • How to issue a self-signed certificate to match Remote Desktop Gateway server address requested

    I have an RDG server named gw.domain.local with port 3389/tcp forwarded from
    gw.example.com.
    Using RDGM snap-in I created a self-signed SSL certigicate with FQDN gw.example.com.
    But when I connect over RDP from outside the local network I'm getting an error:
    Your computer can't connect to the computer because the Remote Desktop Gateway server address requested and the certificate name do not match
    Because certificate subject name is gw.domain.local indeed.
    So there question is: how to issue a certificate properly, or how to assign an existing one the name to match?

    Hi,
    Thanks for your post in Windows Server Forum.
    The certificate error which you are facing seems like certificate mismatch error, something like the security certificate name presented by the TS Gateway server does not match the TS Gateway name. You can try reconnecting using the FQDN name of the TS Gateway
    server. You can refer below article for more troubleshooting.
    TS Gateway Certificates Part III: Connection Time Issues related to TS Gateway Certificates
    And for creating a SSL certificate for RD gateway, you can refer beneath articles.
    1.  Create a Self-Signed Certificate for the Remote Desktop Gateway Server

    Hope it helps!

    It is not possible to extend it. You have to re-issue the cert every year. You can either buy a certificate or setup your own CA to extend the time.

  • How to renew your self-signed certificate p12 with Flash Builder

    I have been using a self-signed certificate (generated using Adobe Flash Builder 4.7) for my Android app. The app is live on Google Play market but the certificate is going to expire soon, and I know if I create new certificate and update my app, existing Android users will not be able to auto-update the app (as the App's Signature has been changed). I would like to know how can we re-new the self-signed Certificate .p12 with Flash Builder?
    Thank you very much.

    After doing my research about the self-signed certificate created by Adobe Flash Builder , I realized that was my mistake to think that the certificate would expire soon. I doubled check the expiration date of my self-signed certificate and the date was set to 35 years after I generated it using flash builder 4.7 (which is very safe).
    For anyone who wants to check the self-signed .p12 expiration date you follow the instruction from this link:

    Hope it helps

  • How do we create self-signed certificate using java packages

    Hi All,
    I require some information on creating self-signed certificate using java packages.
    The java.security.cert.* package allows you to read Certificates from an existing store or a file etc. but there is no way to generate one afresh. See CertificateFactory and Certificate classes. Even after loading a certificate you cannot regenerate some of its fields to embed the new public key – and hence regenerate the fingerprints etc. – and mention a new DN. Essentially, I see no way from java to self-sign a certificate that embeds a public key that I have already generated.
    I want to do the equivalent of ‘keytool –selfcert’ from java code. Please note that I am not trying to do this by using the keytool command line option – it is always a bad choice to execute external process from the java code – but if no other ways are found then I have to fall back on it.
    Regards,
    Chandra

    I require some information on creating self-signed certificate using java packages. Its not possible because JCE/JCA doesn't have implementation of X509Certificate. For that you have to use any other JCE Provider e.g. BouncyCastle, IAIK, Assembla and etc.
    I'm giving you sample code for producing self-signed certificate using IAIK JCE. Note that IAIK JCE is not free. But you can use BouncyCastle its open source and free.
