Certificate error in Internet Explorer 7

Certificate error in Internet Explorer 7

Using Internet Explorer 7 and visiting secured websites, such as the password page, Athena, webmail, Minerva, etc. you will probably encounter the following error message:

This error message appears because the security certificate was issued by the University itself and not by an authority acknowledged by Microsoft.

To solve this problem, for most webpages you just have to install the "CA Certificate" of Ghent University in your browser.

For certain websites, such as https://zephyr.ugent.be, you need to import its own certificate:

Click on "Certificate Error" next to the IE7 address bar and then "View certificates"
Click on "Install certificate..."
Click "Next"
You will be asked where the certificate has to be stored. You can use the default setting and click "Next".
Click "Finish"
Confirm by clicking "Yes"
On your next visit, you will not see the error message again.

If the certificate error message still appears (status: 'This CA Root certificate is not trusted because it is not in the Trusted Root Certification Authorities store'), proceed as follows:
Save and open the certificate on http://helpdesk.ugent.be/email/en/certie.php. Click "Install Certificate". In the Certificate import wizard, select "Place all certificates in the following store" - Browse - select "Trusted Root Certification Authorities " and click "OK".
