2. Security > 17. Manage Digital Certificates

Manage Digital Certificates

Who gives Firefox trustworthy advice? You can change that set of advisors.

All content from a web site that advertises itself as secure has to be checked. Secure content must be accompanied by a digital signature and by a certificate that says whom the digital signature belongs to. The certificate must originate from a Certificate Authority (an organization) that Firefox knows. This hack explains how to change the certificates and Certificate Authorities (CAs) that Firefox knows about.

Examining Existing Certificates and Authorities

The Firefox Options dialog box lets you manage digital certificates. Click the Advanced icon to display that panel, expand the Certificates item, and click the Manage Certificates... button. Figure 2-3 shows that window, with the fourth tab in front.
