Exporting Certificate from Chrome to File
This section provides a tutorial example on how to export the certificate provided by an 'https' Web site from Chrome to a file.
Normally, when a browser visits an "https" Web server, it will get the certificate from the server and use it for one web session only. When you close the browser, the certificate will be removed from memory. It will not be stored on the local computer permanently.
However, if you want to keep a copy of the certificate, you can try these steps shown below to export it to a file:
1. Run Chrome and go to https://login.yahoo.com and wait for the log in page to be loaded.
2. Click the lock icon in front of the Web address field. A small pop up windows shows up.
3. Click the "Certificate" link on the pop up window. The Certificate dialog box shows up.
4. Click the "Details" tab. Then click the "Copy to File..." button. The Certificate Export Wizard shows up.
5. Follow the wizard to save the certificate to a file.
