I have an nginx installation and a self-signed CA against which I want my users to authenticate with client certificates signed by this CA.
Things work perfectly in Linux with both Firefox and Chrome. On Windows 10, Firefox works fine. So I know it is not a misconfiguration of the server, the system clock or the certificates themselves.
I import the certificates by running certmgr.msc. I store the client certificate in the "Personal" store and the CA's certificate in "Trusted Root Certification Authorities". I then restart chrome via
chrome://restart and have even restarted Windows to no avail.
After I get the (expected) warning about the server certificate authenticity not being verified, in linux and on Firefox in Windows I am given the option to "Proceed anyway". On Windows Chrome and IE I am given no such option. Chrome presents the following screen:
I am using Chrome v56 (64bit)
Is there any way around this problem that I am unaware of? Why has Chrome taken away the option to proceed anyway on windows but the option still exists on other OSs?
On MacOS, Chrome behaves like on Linux. After importing the certificates in the user's keychain I am presented with the same warning and the option to "Proceed anyway".
I do not know if this is a Chrome issue or if it is some security restriction that Windows enforces but I find it extremely impractical and annoying.
