How to get a Remote Site's Certifate with Safari!
Authored by: Patchsmyle on Oct 31, '05 06:00:17AM

Ok, i have read through all of the threads, and I noticed one thing was never answered by any one. How do you get the Self Signed CA certificate of a remote website using a MAC. Well the answer (At least for Tiger Safari) is VERY easy, but not intuitive.

1. Navigate to the website you wish to get the certificate from.
2. When the 'Root certificate is not valid' sheet appears, click on the "Show Certificate" button.
3. Press and hold the OPTION key. While holding down the option key, click and drag the certificate icon to your desktop.

Tada.. you now have your Self Signed non-verified remote host Certificate in .pem format!

Enjoy!
