I have an applet that is being loaded from a secure tomcat server and right before the applet is loaded I get an error that the site certificate is not valid and cannot be used to verify the identity of this website. Im not sure why this is an issue only when the applet starts to load because tomcat is setup using this certificate it is now saying isnt trusted. If I hit continue that applet loads fine, but every new session I get this again.
Ive found a work around by importing the COMODO RSA Organization Validation Secure Server CA into the Java Security Control Panel. This really isnt an option for all of our users so Im looking for other ways of fixing this.
When I check the security report of the site it says that the connection to the website is encrypted. The site certification is valid and certification path status says that its ok too. I had the tomcat admin import the COMODO RSA Organization Validation Secure Server CA into the keystore and it didnt fix the issue.
The applet is signed with a valid signer certificate and runs fine once the user hits continue.
Any suggestion or help would be appreciated. At the least something to try or another thing to look at would be really helpful.
