proxcert.pem expired?
proxcert150101.zip files should be good to 2016.01.01
proxcert2025_01_25.zip files may be good till 2025.01.25 Cheers

proxcert150101 pem built by Sidki's "Roll-Your-Own-ProxCert" proxcert generator,
http://sidki.proxfilter.net/prox-ssl.html

Converted to proxcert.crt by Firefox.

Both zips contain
proxcert.pem for the Proxomitron and browsers that import pem files.
proxcert.crt for browsers that import crt files, like Internet Explorer 10.

Edit: Added proxcert2025_01_25.zip
Edit: Another year another file (106)(89)
Edit: Adding proxcert140101crt.zip for IE
Edit: Another year another file (105), dead link http://sidki.host22.com/prox-ssl.html.
Edit: Another year another file (97).
Edit: Another year another file (117).
Edit: Another year another file.

Have fun!

You can make your own proxcert file with makeproxcert.zip. I have been using it and it is easy to use.

RE: proxcert.pem expired?
I don't see how one site cert (e.g. Proxomitron's) could ever influence another site cert (e.g. www.citibank.com).

So i guess the problem you're seeing is caused by something else.

RE: proxcert.pem expired?
all i know is with the "older" cert, i do NOT get the error and with the "newer" on i DO (so i'm obviously sticking with the "older")...

not saying it makes sense, just saying that the cert is the ONLY variable being changed - i change file names to activate one versus the other while Proxo is closed, i open Proxo and go to that site, error with one, no error with the other...


not saying it makes sense, just reporting precisely what is happening Big Teeth
i don't recall "where" the 9/23/08 cert came from, to be honest, i just know that it "works" Smile!

Does this happen every time?
Are you using half-ssl?

The first time I loaded http://https..www.citibank.com/us/cards/index.jsp, I saw an error like this.
The error that I saw was from the Proxomitron complaining about the site's certificate.
The Proxomitron had been running for a while and had seen other HTTPS.
I have not seen it since on any machine, in any browser, with any proxcert.pem.
I have seen similar errors in the past with other proxcerts.

I don't think Proxo will do half-ssl without proxcert.pem but

http://www.proxomitron.info/45/docs/readme.txt Wrote:However it's only used for the
connection between Proxomitron and your web browser - the connection
between Proxomitron and the remote site relies on the site's certificate
not Proxomitron's.

So... I don't know.

Quote:i open Proxo and go to that site, error with one, no error with the other...

I believe there is another proxcert.pem at
http://www.proxomitron.info/files/index.html

Try creating your own.

RE: proxcert.pem expired?
i'm about 80% sure that it IS one that i created (using Windows 2000, not XP, if i recall correctly, anything i "tried" to "roll" in XP kept flagging errors if memory serves)...

i only get the error the FIRST visit to that site...
but CLOSE proxo and re-open, the error returns for the FIRST visit even after other SSL sites were okay, it seems to be ONLY with that site out of close to FOUR DOZEN secure sites that i use...


what perhaps is more intriguing is that the "old" one is 'supposed to be' EXPIRED, but i'm NOT getting ANY error dialogs indicating that it is "expired" - so for all i know, i can stick with it for the next DECADE, lol...

May I/we have a copy?

The proxcert that I uploaded was created in win98se, fwiw.

Should also mention, another prox-list member added one to the list's files.

RE: proxcert.pem expired?
attached is my 9/23/08 proxcert.pem...
i'm pretty sure i rolled it myself, but honestly not 100% sure of that...
i recall doing "tons" of trial-and-error cert-stuff a year ago just for kicks-and-giggles...
and i recall that the OS i rolled from seemed to effect the outputted file...

my certs.pem (also attached) is dated 2/19/2007, perhaps that is also worth mentioning as Proxomitron.Info is hosting one dated 10/1/2006 (the datestamp within the .zip)...


before any of you-all updated your proxcert.pem, did you get any dialogs saying it was "expired" ???
i've NEVER seen any dialogs saying mine was expired, so i'm wondering if that is browser-specific (i'm using GreenBrowser shelling IE8)...

Yep. Yours also generates the error for me.
Half-ssl should hide this error. The browser never sees the expired proxcert with half-ssl.

Don't have GreenBrowser.

Curious...

RE: proxcert.pem expired?
ah... i half-ssl "all" the time, so i guess that explains it...

what still ponders me is that while half-ssl'ing and swapping out different proxcert's, some certs give errors when visiting some ssl sites and some don't...

guess i'd rather have an OUTDATED on coupled with half-ssl and NOT get these errors...


sounds to me that with half-ssl, we don't "care" if the cert is expired or not, so that's good news to me, that tells me i can still be using proxo another decade from now...

I will be a little surprised, if the current https scheme lasts that long.

that's what worries me...
in that there is absolutely no replacement for Proxo...

the on-the-fly html-rewrite ability is a can't-live-without...
i'll go back to ARPNET before surfing without Proxo !!!
