My company has an internal wiki and some QA sites that are all served by a machine with another name, so the url doesn't match the entity serving the certificate. I'm using Snow Leopard on a Mac. Firefox and Safari both are able to remember the certificate for future reference, but Chrome has no mechanism for doing so.
This is probably not the site you are looking for! You attempted to reach qablahblah1, but instead you actually reached a server identifying itself as qa.blahblah.com. This may be caused by a misconfiguration on the server or by something more serious. An attacker on your network could be trying to get you to visit a fake (and potentially harmful) version of qablahblah1. You should not proceed. (Buttons) "Proceed anyway" and "Back to safety"
In researching this I came across http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Chrome/thread?tid=18ea33a150bbccd2&hl=en#fid_18ea33a150bbccd2000490771188d4c5 which suggested using Safari to "Trust" the certificate system wide. Leaving aside the wrongheadedness of having to use another browser to get a certificate saved so Chrome can see it, this doesn't even work.
I even tried setting up a local NSS Certificate DB and importing the certificates into it, but Chrome doesn't see them.
Can anybody suggest a method to force Chrome to remember my certificates when I return?
p.s. I also looked at How do add a certificate from a self-signed server to trusted certificates in Chrome? - but the answer there is so cryptic that I am forced to ask the question again.
