SSLChainSaver 2 Released
Posted by Jon Westfall in "Pocket PC Software" @ 12:30 PM
"Two years ago I released the first version of the SSLChainSaver tool. This tool helps you diagnose and repair SSL problems on Windows Mobile devices. After a very long delay, Version 2 is now up on the Microsoft download center. I wasn't able to release the source code this time. The usage instructions are similar to the previous version"
If you're like me, you hate to pay for something you can get for free - even if it means a bit more work to implement compared to the pay solution. Thus is the reason I have a self-signed certificate on my Exchange server, and the reason I need to deploy a root certificate to any device I want to connect to it. SSLChainSaver can be very helpful in getting the certs together that need deployed so you can easily create a CAB file to send them on their merry way. And while you're laughing at certificate fees, your users won't be bugging you about sending them a root certificate and instructions on how to install it (As often...).
