Trust CERN Root Certificate with Internet Explorer

By default, on managed Windows machines in the CERN domain, the certificates of the CERN root and trusted certification authorities are trusted, so any CERN certificate will be verified correctly.

On Windows machines outside the CERN domain (home PCs, external laptops, etc...) the certificates of the CERN root and trusted certification authorities are not trusted by default, so CERN Certificates will not be verified correctly.
On these machines, it will be necessary to install the CERN Root Certificates to trust the CERN Certification Authority.

Resolution

The CERN Grid Certification Authority certificates are distributed through the CERN Grid Certification Authority Files and Documents site.
