Error validating server certificate for sourceforge

Self-signed SSL certificate is pre-generated during the first setup of Visual SVN Server.

Self-signed certificate allows you to setup encrypted connection to the server but it's not trusted by standard Subversion clients and web-browsers.

Client certificates can be associated with the SSL connection to a web server or an SMTP mail server.

A client adds certificates to a collection of X509Certificate or X509Certificate2 class objects.

The Ssl Stream class provides even more control over the SSL handshake.

This protocol is a combination of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol with the SSL/TLS protocol to provide encryption and secure identification of the server.

The main idea of HTTPS is to create a secure channel over an insecure network.

You will receive the following warning message if you are connecting to the server that is configured to use self-signed certificate: Error validating server certificate for 'https://vt-203': - The certificate is not issued by a trusted authority.

Use the fingerprint to validate the certificate manually!
