1A First Alternative

Import 1A root certificate - Windows Vista

This manual is for older systems and/or software and is no longer maintained.

This manual is meant for 1A-server users with a servername which ends in nl.alt001.com. This manual explains how you can install the alt001.com root certificate, so you can use the services on your 1A-server without certificate warnings.

Certificates are used to identify services and to encrypt the communication to and from the service. When a certificate is not trusted, this encryption will not work.

Every 1A-server contains an email server that accepts both encrypted and unencrypted connections. Because unencrypted servers are attacked more often, they will be phased out. Browsers also show a warning when an unknown certificate is used
