I'm trying to setup anyconnect from Cisco on a Fedora 19 machine. I have received some certificates from the organization running the VPN, but there are several layers between me and their IT people and it's very painful to try to get any support, so I'm hoping someone here will be able to help me out.
When I visit the website for the VPN I see a "Certificate Validation Failure" error, and similar when I try to use the
I had tried adding the 2 .cer certificates to
/etc/pki/ca-trust/source/anchors then I ran
update-ca-trust extract. When doing that I do see a message realted to one of the certificates:
p11-kit: duplicate 'AddTrust External CA Root' certificate found in: ca-bundle.trust.crt
And that shows up 5 times.
Visiting the website (using Chrome and Firefox) as well as using the
vpnui client still produce the same "Certificate Validation Failure"
My googling is apparently very weak on this as I've not found anything to help me figure out what to try next. Any pointers would be very welcome.
Update: Though it seems happy now that I've imported the personal cert to my browser, here is what seems to me the error message from running
openssl s_client -CAfile <path/to/ca.pem> -connect <server:port> with my personal cert or one of the two
cer files as the CAfile and appropriate server:port:
Verify return code: 20 (unable to get local issuer certificate)
There was obviously a bunch more output, but without having a great internal handle on the security implications I'm loathe to share too many specific details about it.
The third cert they gave me seems to work fine though, I get a return code of
0 with that one.
I'm coming to believe that this question is perhaps misidentifying the original problem.
