Re: IE8 and certificates
Seems that IE is now doing what Firefox has been doing since v3 came out -
refusing self-signed certificates, or making it very hard to get the browser
to accept them .
The logic behind this seems to be to give greater protection against
phishing, but what they don't seem to have reailsed is that it shoots itself
squarely in the foot where intranets are concerned. The result is that
intranets have to accept warning messages or else switch to INsecure methods
