Trusted Certificates

S3 Drive stores information about trusted SSL certificates at the location noted below. In most cases there is no need to manage these settings directly within the registry.

When establishing a connection to the configured host the trust of the SSL certificate is determined by the Windows security libraries. If the certificate is not trusted on the system a dialog is displayed and the certificate may be explicitly accepted, thereby overriding the system trust. In this case the server's certificate is base64 encoded and stored in the registry for future connections. These are created at the following path:


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\nsoftware\S3Drive\20\TrustedCertificates

The following values are applicable at this path:

NameTypeDescription
{HostName}String

The value name is the hostname of the server for which the certificate was manually accepted. For instance my.bucket.s3.us-east-1.amazonaws.com. The value data is the base64 encoded certificate that was manually accepted.
