Listing of Trusted Root CA in Google Chrome

This section provides a tutorial example on how to see the list of trusted root CA (PKI Authorities) pre-installed in Google Chrome.

As we learned earlier, the trust of the entire HTTPS Website is based on certificates of trusted root CA (PKI authorities).

Before using the Google browser Google Chrome on my computer to visit any HTTPS Websites, I want to see who are those trusted PKI authorities.

1. Run Google Chrome, 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 65 pre-installed trusted root CA certificates shows up.

If you compare the list of trusted root CA in Google Chrome and IE (Internet Explorer), you will see that they are the same. My guess is that Google Chrome is sharing certificate stores with IE.
