Hi: I am trying to set up the SSL for my .NET 2.0 web service hosted on windows 2003 server. However when I browse to the web site through Https://mywevsite/mywebservice or even Https://mywevsite. I keep getting the error as “The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a trusted certificate authority.”.
I have done the following steps: • Install the Microsoft Certificate Services on the server • Assign Port num 443 to whole web side SSL under IIS • Use IIS->directory security->secure communications-> server certificate to generate the certificate request file, • Use this request file to generate the certificate though the Microsoft Certificate Services on the same server. • Then I go back to the IIS to import the generated certificate.
There is one thing I feel not understand, after generated certificate request file in step 1. The “Issued to” in the request certificate property is Https://mywevsite. However when I finish generating the certificate, the “Issued to” of this certificate become my windows domain user name, which is my name. I am not sure how it is related to the error I got.
