Where are the certificates of ca's stored in firefox?
I want to copy all the ca certificates of firefox to my a folder or a keystore. I don't want to export the certificates one by one. It will take a lot of time. But I am not able to get the directory where the ca certificates are stored. I am using windows xp. Where will I be able to see the certificates or the keystore containing the certificates of the firefox browser? From the answers below, I have come to know that the certificates are stored in th ecert8.db file. but how to extract the contents of this file? The reason I am asking this is that my application requires that when a client submits his certificate, I have to see if the issuer is a valid ca. For that I need a list of the valid ca's. So is there any way I can anagrammatically access the certificates in cert8.db and verify the client certifiate.?
All the certificates are stored in cert8.db under your profiles folder.
For Windows XP:
C:\Documents and Settings\<Windows login/user name>\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile folder>
