With all government sites mandated to use https by the end of 2016 (, and more and more commercial services moving to https, there needs to be an easy way to add certs to the Java Trusted Store so that cfhttp works correctly.  I currently have a tool that tests website status (500 websites) inside a government network and externally, and https sites will not resolve.  If there is already an easy way to do this, please share instructions here.

By the way, in the platform area, you need "All Platforms"

Didn't know this existed and will be trying it out. As you said, it should be integrated into the product.

FYI - I used CERTMAN on CF11/Windows 2012R2 without issue. It does not work of OSX, but I suspect it is a permissions issue with Java. It would be extremely beneficial if this was integrated into the administrator. Also, as expected, it does require service restart each time you add a certificate.

I recntly used certman on CF9 and it worked like a charm. The government is not the only entity making security changes - Paypal has just moved to SHA-256 certifactes too. This is indeed important to security and should be included in the security section of the cfide (at least while CF is JVM based!)

What does deferred mean? This seems like a straightforward form doesn't it?

I would guess that its not something thats going to happen in CF12 and will subsequently be forgotten about in CF13?

In light of the fact that the updates to the PR for CF12 are ridiculously slow and still in alpha, can deferred mean there is a possibility it will be something added the CF12?
