unsecured connection


trying to connect to https websites using opera browser, but it says connection is unsecured. I was trying to troubleshoot it. I checked opera package worked on different machine, opera security settings, known good kernel, that leaves me to openssl which I reinstalled but still getting unsecured connection. capturing network traffic didn't show much either. It attempts to secure connection but fails. any ideas?

where does it say this? what does it actually say? there is NO WAY you'd need to reinstall openssl or anything. I'd anticipate you're just not reading / understanding the message correctly.

Probably "untrusted" connection.
Self signed cert or such.

I'm getting 'insecure connection' warning on most https websites using TLS1.0, there is one I can get 'trusted connection' useing TLS1.2

It maybe is using a weaker encryption,
So maybe insecure doesn't neccessarily mean its unencrypted then right?

but the thing thats odd is my other box is getting 'trusted connection' on all the same websites.

closing this thread, it appears to be issue with the browser itself. Apparently there is no way to store certs in that particular version of the browser.
