Users have XP, Win 7 OS. Deployed a GPO for Trusted Root Certification Authorities for IE and was successfull. Not hte case for Firefox on the same machines. If I view the local Firefox certificates, my deployed cert does not show up. We are in a domain environment with Win Server 2008 R2. Is there a way to deploy the same certificate for firefox?

I am not an expert, but this may put you in the right direction for those who have done this before, if you have trouble please do let us know.

I found some recommendations here: Barracuda " FirefoxADM for allowing centrally managed locked and/or default settings in Firefox via Group Policy Templates in Active Directory. More information is available at http://sourceforge.net/projects/firefoxadm/."

and "SSL Certificates: Setting Up and Authorizing the Internal Certificate Authority " http://blog.secureideas.com/2013/06/ssl-certificates-setting-up-and.html

Hey all, I asked about this in the #security irc channel and there were a few recommendations:

If you publish a webpage that has a link to the certificate that they want the user to trust

<a href='https://example.org/mycert.crt'>

mime type

application/x-x509-ca-cert

Then when the user clicks that link, the user will be given the option of trusting the certificate.

Publishing the webpage may be the way to go, I will definately give that a shot. I will post back when I get the results, thanks!
