Listing of Trusted Root CA in Chrome 40
This section provides a tutorial example on how to see the list of trusted root CA (PKI Authorities) pre-installed in Chrome 40.
As we learned earlier, the trust of the entire HTTPS Web site is based on certificates of trusted root CA (PKI authorities).
Before using the Google browser Chrome 40 on my computer to visit any HTTPS Web sites, I want to see who are those trusted PKI authorities.
1. Run Chrome 40, and go to the "Settings" after click the menu icon on top right corner. You see the settings page showing up.
2. Click the "Show advanced settings..." link at the bottom.
3. Click the "Manage certificates..." button in the HTTPS/SSL section. You see Certificates manager showing up.
4. Click the "Trusted Root Certificate Authorities" tab. A list of about 400 pre-installed trusted root CA certificates shows up.
If compare the list of trusted root CA in Chrome 40 and IE 10, you will see that they are the same. My guess is that Chrome 40 is sharing certificate stores with IE 10.
