In the tab Certificates you can find information about the certificate store used by the WebOffice 10.9 SP1 application and the possibility to import new SSL certificates into the certificate store or delete existing SSL certificates.

 

WebOffice 10.9 SP1 uses its own certificate store cacerts_weboffice on top of the Java certificate store cacerts in order to maintain imported certificates also after an update of Java. The display shows both the paths to the certificate stores in use and the list of certificate authorities officially trusted by Java.

icon_warning

ATTENTION!

Please note that when using LDAPS it is necessary to specify the Fully-Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) of the LDAPS server and not only the domain in the JAVA or WebOffice certificate store.

icon_comment

Only if a certificate is located in the WebOffice certificate store, it can be assured that after a Java update (new Java certificate store) the certificate stays trusted, as the WebOffice certificate store is the leading certificate store.
