How to Get Root Certificates from Windows Update Using Certutil

Google publishes list of Certificate Authorities it doesn't trust

Note The driver signing verification policy that is used by the PnP manager requires that the root certificate of a private CA has been previously installed in the local machine version of the Root Certification Authorities certificate store. For more information about certificate stores, see the Code Signing Best Practices website. Our new feedback system is built on GitHub Issues.

Read about this change in our blog post. However, the PnP manager can successfully verify a digital signature only if the following statements are true: Note A private CA is unlikely to be trusted outside the network environment.

There are no open issues. I have many systems without internet connection. If you connect to a machine via RDP, Windows first checks certificate updates online. I make a lot of RDP connections each day. I save hours on not staring at the message: I know this is an older thread; however, I would like to submit an alternative solution. In other words, switch your signing certificate to one that has a much older, approved root CA. DIGICert offers this when requesting a cert. This is simply an example.

There are other certificate providers offering the same thing. As such, they are automatically recognized by all common web browsers, mobile devices, and mail clients.

Some things we have noticed while investigating this: A fresh Windows Server installation does not show the Globalsign cert in the list of trusted root authorities.

With Windows Server not connected to the internet, installing our software works fine. At the end of the installation the Globalsign cert is present not imported by us. In the background Windows appears to install it transparently on first use.

Jeroen Ritmeijer 1 4 New root certificates appearing on all systems without warning or documentation are a concern for some security people. They simply don't trust Microsoft to fully vet new root certificates without at least doing some vetting themselves. Doesn't help matters when Microsoft does things like pushing 18 new root certificates wihout any notice.

Can't you check if the certificate is available in the system and offer to download your certificate by hand from you website if the updating is disabled? That is the whole point of digitally signing installers.

Also, if admins have disabled updating of root certs then they are not going to be happy to let some third party vendor do this. Then you could provide a website which checks for the certificate, which the users can visit prior to installing your product?

So far, so good but then James Snell 5 7. A great number of sysadmins [ HopelessN00b So you'd rather they freely make configuration changes involving security that they don't fully understand? That seems a far scarier proposition to me. JoshuaShearer I'd rather they understand or stop calling themselves sysadmins. JoshuaShearer Like Kevin said, if they don't understand security, they shouldn't be sysadmins, and I find it to be a scary proposition to have an administrator of anything who thinks security is some black magic or voodo.

JoshuaShearer - since they don't understand, it's arguably moot as they won't know if what they already have is correct or not In many small-medium sized businesses the 'admin' is "good with computers" because they have the latest shiny iThings rather than a genuine professional. Duncan X Simpson 2 Thanks for your answer, but based on our real world experience it IS common and I don't think any server admin would be happy for us to install a root cert if they have made the decision to not even trust Microsoft with this.

Understood, but you also learned that you own testing the external dependency, documenting this for installation, and communicating the requirement to the customer. That is real world experience. I doubt that your customer base would qualify as empirical data to support a conclusion that it is "common" that this feature is disabled.

As a practical workaround, you could provide instructions for admins to manually install the required certificate, if they don't want to allow automatic root certificate updates. IlmariKaronen, we already do. For some reason it doesn't always work, even when they import it into the correct store. Perhaps it is related to many servers not being connected to the internet so they cannot verify the cert's validity. My reason for disabling the certif. I ran into a similar problem with SharePoint checking certificates and being slow as result years a ago.

New code signing root certificates must support the SHA2 hash algorithm. Root certificates that support code signing use will be removed from distribution by the Program 10 years from the date of distribution of a replacement rollover root certificate, or a shorter deadline on request of the CA.
