Use a trusted certificate
While self-signed certificates provide good security, the following warnings are still displayed when users access HTTPS sites using a fully-qualified domain name:
- Domain mismatch
- The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a trusted certificate authority
These warnings are eliminated by using any one of the following types of trusted certificates:
- certificates signed by a commercial certificate authority (CA) that is recognized by all popular web browsers. A complete list is in Windows under Control Panel > Internet Options > Content > Certificates > Trusted Root Certification Authorities.
- certificates created by an organization that operates its own certificate authority that is recognized by their users' web browsers by way of a root certificate that is installed into all users' web browsers.
PaperCut NG/MF allows you to:
- Purchase and install a new trusted certificate
- Use an existing trusted PaperCut NG/MFcertificate
- Use an existing trusted IIS certificate
This is a technically complex area and there is an assumed level of experience with SSL certificates in general.
