#8175 new Feature request

FileZilla Client should use the local certificate store

Reported by: Robert Sander Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: SSL certificate management Cc: Alexandre Sicard
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


Currently the FileZilla client does not trust any certifcate presented by the server even if it is signed by a Root CA.

FileZilla client should use the local certificate store (on Windows, Mac and Linux) to decide if a Root CA can be trusted and thus if the server's certificate can be trusted.

The user should not have to be bugged in the case a trust chain is already established.

This is espacially annoying when the server's certificate is renewed. Suddenly FileZilla client tells the user that the certificate is untrusted. In the end the user is confused resulting in support calls and frustration.

I would like this feature as well. I didn't see a vote option, so I'm adding this.

This is still valid, and I would like it, too. (One should be able to vote for, or at least star/favorite/monitor/watch/subscribe to a ticket.)
