    ESET SS v6.0.308.0 seems to be blocking ALL https traffic, under which tab do I find the place to disable this blocking behavior, I want all my traffic to use https, that should be the default...

    The screenshot is what I am seeing. Again TLS/SSL should be the DEFAULT, so why do I need to make an exception or give it explicit authority to use a more secure form of communication? I need to disable this checking that ESET SS is doing until this gets resolved. How?

    Hello rand4505

    Not really an answer, but....more an explanation for why you see a red notification window
    Eset notifies you , because the certificate is not on the TRCA-list. And therefore ask you, if this certificate in question, should be trusted or not.

    Regards, Janus

    SSL certs authentication is very different from certs that are used to sign Programs. Yes they are both x.509. But I am not going to be installing certs for every website I go to into my CrtMgr on my box just to go to a site. From the behavior of SS I am thinking whoever coded this implementation didn't know the difference.
