Root Certificates out of date?

Here you can post about the issues related to modifications performed manually (not through the kiosk wizard). Example: swapped kernel, added 3rd party modules or files.
Please describe in detail what has been changed and hopefully other kiosk user will be able to help.
Porteus team wont resolve bugs posted in this category as we support only modifications made by the kiosk wizard.

Root Certificates out of date?

Post#1 by styszler » 09 May 2014, 17:10

I am trying to set the home page of my kiosk to a site that has a valid Comodo SSL certificate. I just created the ISO for the kiosk today. I am getting an untrusted site error. How can the root certificates for Firefox be updated. The SSL cert for this web server is valid on every other system I have tried... I think it is a root cert issue.

THANKS!

hi styszler,

does kiosk display the same SSL warning on other sites as well? maybe you could install ca-certificates package from slackware-14.1 repo (convert it to xzm module using our desktop edition):
http://mirrors.slackware.com/slackware/ ... arch-1.txz
and add this command to rc.local:

Code: Select all

update-ca-certificates --fresh
btw: please use kiosk section of the forum for kiosk related issues:
Porteus Kiosk Edition

i'll move your post there once you answer to this post.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Dear Fanthom,

Firstly, I thought I was in the right kiosk forum, apologies.

I am not sure how to apply your advice. I just built an iso using the web-based wizard. How, specifically, would I make those adaptations? If I convert to XZM (whatever that means!) how do I include it in the ISO? What does it mean to add the command to rc.local? I am not as un-technical as my questions make me sound, but I am more of a windows/mac person. Wouldn't something as basic as that be updated centrally? I am, hopefully, not doing something too weird. I just want to present a secure form on my kiosk.

Dear tome,

I am pretty sure the system has the correct time but I will re-check. Thanks.

Best,
Sam
