KU4: Before you import the displayed root certificate in the Internet Explorer 8, check it. This will reveal whether the root certificate is actually the original one used.
Adequate administrative permissions
- In the dialog that contains the root certificate information switch to the Details tab.
- Select the field Thumbprint.
- Compare the displayed thumbprint with the one of the original root certificate used.
Both thumbprints must match.
If both thumbprints match, the received server certificate was actually signed with the original root certificate. The received server certificate can then be considered trustworthy.
