Description Jiri Rechtacek 2008-04-21 18:58:22 UTC
Allow verification of 3rd party plugin signature against CA and make corresponding changes in Plugin Manager's
installation wizard UI, i.e. Certificate Validation Warning dialog.
Comment 1 Jiri Rechtacek 2008-04-21 18:59:32 UTC
We're evaluating this RFE for next NetBeans release.
Comment 2 err 2008-04-22 03:50:45 UTC
Isn't this a regression? It use to work in NB5.5.

Some of the issues filed about this problem have "regression" in keywords, some don't. But since it used to work,
doesn't that make it a defect?
Comment 3 Jiri Rechtacek 2008-04-22 08:45:20 UTC
err, it cannot be a regression. Verification in NB6.1 works in as same way as NB5.5. If a plugin is signed by a
certification which was not trusted in NB so far and user has approved it, then NB add this certificate among trusted
and will not ask for confirmation again (fixed issue 123148).
This RFE is speaking about possibility to verify plugins against 3rd party Certificate Authority beside of current
NetBeans certification.

Good idea, who's going to implement it?
