In this previous question, SSL in Tomcat 7, I worked out how to get IE to trust a localhost certificate from my local Tomcat. That's ok for IE, but Chrome still doesn't trust it:

Chrome does not trust localhost certificate

I understand that Chrome just uses the same certificate store as IE, so why is this happening, or more importantly - how can I trust localhost?

Here is a well-written answer, that refers to Configuring SSL Certificate in Linux.

The steps from the answer are:

  • click the lock icon with an X,
  • choose Certificate Information
  • go to Details tab
  • Click on Export... (save as a file)

Then add your certificate

certutil -d sql:$HOME/.pki/nssdb -A -t "P,," -n YOUR_FILE -i YOUR_FILE
