StartSSL with Opera Next 20

  • I managed to create an account wiht startssl.com and I got as far as the control panel. However, Opera never seem to have installed the certificate that was created during account creation. When (still loged on to control panel) I go to Opera Settings I can't see the new certificate from startssl. It is simply not there.

    Since then I migrated over another starssl account/certificate from another computer (FireFox) to Opera. The certificate is installed and visible as "Personal" certificate in Opera settings. However, it seems impossible to login with it to startssl. Opera simply stalls waiting forever instead of prompting for what certificate to use.

    Is Opera not compatible with StarSSL? It the one and only free SSL (that I know of) CA that is included in most major browser. cacert.org etc are not trusted CAs in most systems, so don't point to use them for now.

  • Ok, I've just read the topic title, so just ignore me. 🙂

  • SSL client authentication has been broken since Opera 15. It does not work anymore for sites requesting a client certificate (optional or required). Browser spins and does nothing. Wireshark trace shows the SERVER HELLO done, but Opera never send the GET /, or pop up a window to chose for a client certificate (which is supposed to do since it switched to Chromium and now uses Windows Certificate Store)...

  • I suppose there is no one at Opera that is looking to fix this problem then...

  • I got the same problem!
    Is opera gonna solve it?

  • btw,I'm using Opera Developer 24.0.1543.0

  • Has anyone filed a bug report?

  • The bug related to StartSSL problems is known since mid 2013 and was reported last year.

    @sgunhouse Bug was filed as DNA-22848

  • Same problem with a simple client cert example here under Opera 23.0 😞

    PS: With Opera 12.04 it uses an own keystore, but worked

  • I tried this in OperaMini 7.6.40077 on Android 4.4.3 Galaxy S5.
    It does not work. Cannot even go to auth.startssl.com, so its not my site 🙂
    I suppose its just incompatible, and since 2013, they don't care?

    I had the pleasure to deal with this bug yesterday. ;_;
