Dealing with Trust Issues using Self-Signed Certificates

If you use Self-Signed Certificates to secure your websites in IIS, you probably have received this dreaded message in Internet Explorer at least once:

Well, fortunately, you can get rid of this client error message relatively easily by following these steps:

  1. Click on the Internet Explorer Toolbar to View the Certificate
  2. Follow the steps to Install the Certificate on your Local Machine
  3. When prompted for the location to store the Certificate, select "Trusted Root Certification Authorities" 
  4. Once you have imported the certificate, you will probably have to restart Internet Explorer
  5. Now when you browse to the website, you should no longer receive the Certificate error message!
