Certificate handling in Firefox 78.0.

Hi,

could anyone tell me the difference between the policy settings Import Enterprise Roots and new for Firefox 78.0 : security.osclientcerts.autoload. Thanks Juergen

Hi Juergen, I found a blog post about the new setting: https://blog.mozilla.org/security/2020/04/14/expanding-client-certificates-in-firefox-75/

A "client" certificate is a certificate your browser sends to sites to verify your identity. So this setting probably has a smaller audience compared with the much more common issue of Firefox verifying the certificates received from websites.

Helpful?
