Behind a firewall, using chrome, I am able to access a github repository like so:
Chrome uses our certificate for this access. If I try to access the same url using GitExtensions, I get this error:
SSL certificate problem: self signed certificate in certificate chain
Can I cause GitExtensions to use our certificate to allow access?
EDIT: more info:
On my machine, I don’t see mysysGit, but I do see mingw/curl, so I assume Git is using these. These apparently do not use Windows trust certificates when building the certificate chain. The error that I get, SSL certificate problem: self signed certificate in certificate chain, indicates that the root certificate used by Git/Github is not present in the built-in certificate authority (CA) root bundle. As @Akber Choudhry has pointed out, the CA certificate that is the root of the chain of the certs served by Github SSL server is DigiCert High Assurance EV Root CA and I do see that CA in C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin\curl-ca-bundle.crt.
To verify that the problem is with Git, not GitExtensions, I did this on the command line:
>>git clone https://github.com/Squirrel/Squirrel.Windows.git
And received the same SSL certificate problem error.
It gives the appearance that Git is not using this certificate, thus I tried configuring Git like so:
>>git config --system http.sslcainfo "C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin\curl-ca-bundle.crt"
but this had no effect..
