Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-911) Admin Console should require SSL
Date Thu, 19 Oct 2006 18:57:35 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-911?page=comments#action_12443609 ] 
            
Paul McMahan commented on GERONIMO-911:
---------------------------------------

IANASE.  But I agree with Aaron's comment that the warning message about self-signed cert
would not make a good first impression.  The only way that I know of to avoid the message
would be for Geronimo to use a certificate that has been signed by a trusted root ca like
verisign or thawte.    I notice that https://svn.apache.org uses a cert signed by Starfield
and that one does not produce a browser warning.  I wonder if ASF might be able to provide
its projects with certificates signed by a trusted CA?  Even if so I am doubtful it would
be appropriate to redistribute that cert in a server assembly.
