Google-chrome – How to ignore self-signed certificate error: net::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID with Chrome


I am trying to access an HTTPS site with Chrome and it is throwing my a self-signed certificate error: net::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID. I have tried clicking the red lock/warning sign button in the URL box of the browser, clicked Details, clicked View Certificate, and clicked on the dropdown of Details. It just shows the information about the Certificate and an Ok button, and there is no way to export it, as I was hoping to export and then import it via my Chrome browser.

I trust the website and I visit it frequently, so is it bothersome to constantly, bypass it manually through the warning sign.

So is there a way to permanently ignore the self-signed certificate error using Chrome?

This seemed to work:

  1. Download rootsupd.exe

  2. Extract the files using the command rootsupd.exe /c /t:C:\temp\extroot

  3. From C:\temp\extroot, run the following four commands (from an elevated command prompt):

    updroots.exe authroots.sst
    updroots.exe updroots.sst
    updroots.exe -l roots.sst
    updroots.exe -d delroots.sst
