I have an app that only talks to a dedicated server. We're using https on the server but when I try to connect I get a message saying "You are attempting to open a secure connection, but the serer's certificate is not trusted." It gives options to continue, close the connection, view the certificate, or trust the certificate. This seems like a pretty straightforward thing, but our app is geared towards parents who don't always understand their phones, and anything but the ponderous "trust" process is going to mean the message keeps popping up.
Viewing the certificate says that the errors are Untrusted Cert Chain and Stale Chain Status. Is it possible there's something wrong server side? The cert works with all major browsers and also on our Android version of the app (though we had to do jump through some hoops to get it trusted there).
Is there a way for an application to bypass that message and allow itself to connect to a specific server without triggering the popup?
Failing that, does anyone know which certificate vendors 4.5.0 and later support so we can possibly switch? Ours is through SecureTrust CA.
