BNA 12.4.4 (Java Application blocked for Security)

I'm having trouble with BNA It's just been installed and we're getting a certificate error from java when you try to open a switch

 

right click - Element manager - Hardware

 

Results in a security wanting "Do you want to continue?"  untrusted website "https:locathost:443"

 

Selecting continue results in "Application Blocked for security - Failed to validate certificate - publisher: Network Advisor"

 

more informations gives this info

"sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path validation failed: java.security.cert.CertPathValidatorException: algorithm constraints check failed

Re: BNA 12.4.4 (Java Application blocked for Security)

There is a balance between security and functionality.  Java is pointing out that there are 'issues' with the certificate, and it is technically right about that.

 

But if/since you trust the application not to be evil, then you need to tell Java to allow it.

 

You can run Configure Java, which will open the Java Control Panel.  The Security tab permits you to edit/add to the exception site list, as well as manage certificates.
