Description fstoffel 2014-04-06 13:16:42 UTC
For servers using self signed certificates for https, git has the option to set 'http.sslCAInfo', which is the 'File containing the certificates to verify the peer with'.
This works fine with the git cli client, but unfortunately not with NetBeans. Although, the integrated git client seems to consider the 'http.sslVerify' setting. This is somewhat inconsistent.

I would expect that NetBeans can make use of the certificate, for example by generating a Java trust store containing the certificate, which is stored in the user directory. This trust store could then be used by the git implementation to allow validated access to repositories over https.
